Picture This


Happy Farm Fresh Friday!
This week we have something super fun brought to us by the amazingly sweet and talented, Kim Nath---a Picture This challenge! For this challenge you should incorporate a picture into your card or use a picture for the inspiration of your card. It sounds a little hard but it's SUPER fun!
For my card I've incorporated a picture of the stitching on my wedding dress. When I was searching for papers to match the photo I discovered that this page from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie series mimics the pattern on my dress so well! Incredible! And I just had to use the adorable Stella Sprout for this card too because she's dressed for a formal occasion! I hope that you like this card and will play along with us! Have a great weekend!

For curious minds, here is a pic of the whole dress :)

Deets:
Stamps: The Greeting Farm Wild Sprout Stella, Styled by Amy Young
Paper: Basic Grey Urban Prairie, SU Raspberry Tart
Ink: Copics
Embies: Decorative Scissors, Teal Thread, Martha Stewart Flowers

I can not believe how similar that paper is to your dress!!! Maybe that's where the inspiration came from for the paper! The fact that you incorporated a photo into a card is fabulous! I wasn't even thinking a card since I thought there wasn't enough room for anything else, but apparently there is! :D Kudo's Miss Kadie!

You are definitely one of the most beautiful brides I've seen, and it looks like the BG papers and the gorgeous embroidery were made for each other! Love how you added pink accents to the dress. Your coloring is amazing!
