Hello There Crafty Friends,
I am so excited and honored! I was asked to be a Guest Designer for...
Crop Stop
This is my first post, I will be back on the 28th with another.

...Here's my inspiration project... 
...For This Card - Step By Step...
White cardstock for the card base.
Cut a large piece of ivory cardstock to fit the center of the card.
Used Darice Embossing Folder 'Crackle' on the ivory paper (left and right side) 
Embossed another piece of ivory paper using Darice Embossing Folder 'Wedding Dress'
Fussy cut the wedding dress out using Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors.
Cut out the window with a Spellbinders Shapeabilities D-Lites 'Window Die'.
Cut out the Creative Expressions 'Petite Butterflies' Dies with ivory cardstock.
Cut out the Darice Embossing Essentials Dies 'Ivy Border'.
Using a piece of The Paper Studio 'Tattered and Worn' Paper...For my flowers.
To make my flowers...Cut circles/cut them in a spiral shape/rolled them and glued to end.
Used a Ranger Ink Applicator with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Tea Dye' - on the dress.
With the ink applicator I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Vintage Photo' - on these...
On the card base/over the embossed background/on the butterfly wings/on the flowers
Glued two pieces of coffee stained lace on the back of the window, then glued onto the card.
Next I took a piece of brown string and tied each to make tiebacks for the curtains.
Then glued a string of pearls on the top part of the window.  
Glued a piece of coffee stained gauge to the bottom left/center of the card.
Attached pop-dots to the back of the wedding dress and put it on the card.
Attached half a pop-dot on two of the top right leaves of the ivy die cut.
Then glued the ivy over the dress and onto the card.
Glued a piece of coffee stained gauge on the top left side of the dress.
Glued the flowers onto the card, over the pieces of coffee stained gauge.
Then glued the larger butterfly onto the right side of the vine. 
Attached half a pop-dot on the back of the small butterflies, then added them to the card.
