Best Creation April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Best Creation blog hop where we are showing off punched projects this month. You start at Jodi Wilton's blog and end at the Best Creation blog (where you'll find a list of all the stops in case you lose your way).
How about some Prizes
  • Leave comment on my blog for a chance to win 15 pcs of 6"x6" paper from the Robot and Ballerina collection. There'll be two lucky winners drawn on 1st May.
  • Pick up an alphabet on each designer's blog to spell out a Mystery Word. Email this to teresa@bestcreation.us. One lucky winner will walk away with both the Robot and Ballerina collection.
  • Leave comments on Best Creation's facebook and all the blogs. Two lucky winners will get their choice of either the Robot or Ballerina collection.
Bridal Boutique Card This card is a private commission for Gloria
Here's my classic style wedding card. It represents my version of a bridal boutique window display. First I handcut the dress from patterned paper. Then punched a row of four florettes along the helm and gave the skirt a wavy border treatment. It fits prettily in the frame complemented by the lacy trim and deep velvet blooms.
I mixed older Best Creation wedding stickers with brand new Ballerina Princess papers for this card. The leftover stickers went into making this canvas photo display. A doily and some tulle was thrown in to add textural interest. For contrast I misted the canvas with a pale green.
The reward for getting to the end of this long post is my mystery alphabet reveal : 'L'. Now I'm sending you off to Kim Arledge's blog where more punch inspiration awaits you.
Best Creation Supplies : Ballerina Princess 6x6 Glitter Pad, Glitter Paper #112, Dimensional Stickers BC-HS-003, BC-HS-005 Other Supplies : Basic Grey Capella paper, Petaloo Chantilly Velvet Hydrangea Violet and Mixed Blooms Lilac, Hero Arts Pearls, Tatte Angels Sweet Clover, Mont Marte 4"x4" canvas, doilly, lace


Linking up to these parties
Update :
I'm so thrilled that Ready-Set-Create put my card on the cover of their June/July issue. Thank you Jen.
