I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #67 - Pearls
It's time for a new challenge over on I ♥ Promarkers and this week our theme is 'Pearls' - using pearls on your creations somewhere. Our prize Sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop.
Pearls always suggest weddings to me and more at the moment as it is the time of year when a large number of Brides are floating down the aisle. I do love the old tradition that says the Bride should wear 'Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue'. I know that friends and family members who have married in recent years combined two of these by wearing a blue garter under their dress. This gave me inspiration for my DT card this week.
This lovely garter image from DDS comes together with a beautiful bouquet, but I decided to focus just on the garter for my card, coloured in shades of blue. I added Glossy Accents to the ribbon bow on the front, but it isn't showing up too well in the main picture.
