Tickled Pink to meet Wedding Dress Kimmie :)

Ok, ok, that's not really her name, this is actually Marie Antoinette and she is a new release, but when I first saw her I was reminded of my wedding dress, they are even posing in almost identically!! So from now on she shall be called Wedding Dress Kimmie (by me anyways!) I just hope my wedding dress does not make my butt look quite that big :) (yep, I went crazy and ordered a dress I have never seen in real life, it should arrive in July, maybe sooner, *eek* and I am hoping I don't look like a giant marshmallow)
Anyway, back to the card, i have coloured he in with copics, the DP and blue card stock is from my stash, the base is kraft. I have also punched out a corner in kraft and then sponged it lightly with gold ink, it looks as if it has been glimmer misted, which was a wonderful surprise. The net ribbon stuff is from a local sewing store, I have tied it to close the card (it's a gate fold) and then I have added a couple of pearl pins as a bit of interest. I tried adding flowers and things but the image is actually quite large so it just ended up being too crowded. Awwww, isn't she a darling, I am completely in love with these Kraftin Kimmies now. You can get yours from Tickled Pink Stamps and while your there make sure you get your order in for the new Magnolia fairytale collection. Kellie is now taking her second pre-order so be quick! And don't forget your gift vouchers for Mothers Day!!!
