SC 019/11...

This week for the new challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations I decided to go another way.  Mind you, this wasn't until I had all my stuff to create my card sitting on the desk.  After desicovering that the DSP - Beau Chhateau goes with the Stamp Set Elements of Style & wanting to use both, I then did a complete switch & scrapped a page for my album.

The page is from Dannille's mum's wedding recently held in October where both her & Amber were bridesmaids.  The photos are so beautiful that it just seemed a shame not to do something with them.  This one is of Dannielle & her fiancé, Chris.

Once I had decided to go with the colours Chris was wearing, I again grabbed the DSP - Beau Chateau & the matching stamp set Elements of Style to complete my page.

I cut 1" off 2 sides of the DSP so that it measured 11" x 11" square & adhered it to Soft Suede Cardstock. 

Rhinestones & Stamped Image...


After printing the photo, I left a small white margin right around the photo.  Usually I like to have a matching cardstock border but this way I can bring the white of Dannii's dress into the layout without having to use Whisper White Cardstock

Prior to adhering the Night of Navy Cardstock to the DSP, I adhered a piece of Seam Binding Ribbon across the centre & then  a piece of Taffeta Ribbon over the top.

I layered 3 different size Flowers together, placed a Brad in the centre of each & adhered them to the LHS of the photo with SU Dimensionals.

Rhinestones & Flowers...


To finish the page, I adhered Rhinestones to the top & bottom LHS of the page.  The Rhinestones go well with Dannielle's jewellery.

I am really happy with this page, as it is not too fussy or over the top, just like the beautiful dress she is wearing, while catching the colours in Chris' clothes.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Elements of Style
Ink - Night of Navy
Cardstock - Soft Suede - Textured, Night of Navy
Ribbon - Seam Binding - Baja Breeze, Taffeta - Night of Navy
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Rhinestones, Flowers Brads - Night of Navy


Don't forget to head over to Sunny Challenges & Creations & check out what both Kris & Gwen have created.  Better still, sit down during the week & create something yourself using the sketch provided, but with no Sentiment or Greeting.  You could be the next Ray of Sunshine.

Until next time, Enjoy!

Vicky, this is absolutely gorgeous. Of course the bridesmaid is beautiful and her man is not too bad either. I just love it.
