Banana Split Sunday: Viva La Bride!

Hello! It's time for another Banana Split Sunday and we have a sketch challenge this week. We are also wrapping up our "Week of Peeks". All of the new releases will be available tomorrow, May 18th. There are some really great sets this month - very unique that can't be found elsewhere!

I really hope you take a moment to try this sketch out and link up your creation over at the 2RedBananas blog. One lucky participant will receive their choice of one of the newly released sets.


SCS hosts a Virtual Stamping Night this weekend and as soon as I saw one of the challenges, I knew I had the perfect image to go with it! Kristen challenged everyone to make a non-traditional wedding card focusing on using bright colors and thinking of the fun, kitchy (is that spelled right?) weddings that occur in Vegas.

I don't use bright colors very much although I do love bright colors. I went shopping in my stash and found some really fun paper. My flamingo bride (Hello Beautiful set) was stamped with StazOn on watercolor paper and then colored. Her dress has been paper pieced. I did move my panel as I find it very hard to have an image gazing off the edge of the card. Even though it's very easy to see a bride in this image but I think it could easily be used for a "girls night out" theme - just make the veil hair - or a generic "girly" card too! The sentiment is from the Sweetie set also being released on Monday and was stamped with Memento ink. I added brads in all the corners because - well, frankly, because I could! It is a Vegas wedding card after all! And Vegas is all glitz to me!!

I used my clear glitter pen to add some details like beading and sequins to her dress and some Opal Shimmerz on her veil! Check out her eyeshadow and sparkly eyelashes too!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a terrific weekend! Be sure to visit the rest of the Bananas to see their interpretation of the sketch! You have until next Saturday to link your sketch card up over at the 2RedBananas blog! Good luck with the giveaway!
