"Happily Ever After" Lawn Fawn Sneak Peek!

Hello, my friends!!  Tonight marks the start of sneak peeks for the Lawn Fawn April release!!  I know that I am excited, so I hope that you are too!

Up first is the new set called "Happily Ever After", and I am sure you can tell by the title...it is a wedding themed stamp set.  I used the dress image and one of the sentiments from the set, and I can't get over how fun dressing up the dress was!!  I loved using the rose paper, and glittering just the top half...how pretty would a dress like this be in real life?!  I also used Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #42 for my card, and it was the perfect fit!  It also fits the Wee Memories Challenge #51 to use twine, which was just the perfect little addition to my country chic wedding card!! Here is what I came up with!
"Congrats" supplies: 
Cardstock/Ribbon: Papertrey Ink
Paper/Jewel: Glitz Design (Laced with Grace: Rose, Floral)
Vellum: The Paper Company
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Happily Ever After set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: chestnut) 
Twine: Darice Inc. 
Pin: Maya Road
Flower: Recollections
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Glitter: DecoArt

Instructions:  Fold vintage cream cardstock in half to make card base.  Layer a block of vellum to a floral paper block, and zig-zag stitch along the seam.  Adhere the entire paper piece to the card front, and tie ribbon around the bottom.  Stamp the sentiment to a vintage cream cardstock strip, and adhere around a clear topped pin.  Cut a flag shape to the end of it, and then adhere the entire piece to the card front.  Stamp the dress to patterned paper and cut out.  Mask off the dress bottom, and then cover the top in glitter.  Add a pearl strip to the middle of the dress, then adhere it to the card front, slightly overlapping the sentiment flag.  Tie a bow from twine, adhere to the middle of the ribbon bow, and then accent the middle with a clear jewel.  Accent the dress with a paper flower to finish.

Oh, how I know you are going to just love this stamp set!!  And I know that I can't wait to see what the other Lawn Fawn girls came up with...and here is a list so you can check them out too! 

And don't forget that the Lawn Fawn blog always has some amazing giveaways during release week!!  Here is where you can win so far...be sure to follow the posting comments!!  ♥♥♥
