Papertrey Ink Man and wife die engagement card

Simply Create Too

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Simply Create Too. We had so many great entries for the last challenge and it gets harder for the team to select the winners, so thank you for taking the time to join us. The theme for this challenge is 'Pretty Woman', (I can't get the Roy Orbison song out of my head now!), and I came up with this quick engagement card:-

I went with a CAS design using Papertrey Ink Man and Wife dies, and I embossed the sentiment from PTI Just a Kiss stamps with white embossing powder. I cut the figure from a pale grey card and the dress from white card and stamped it randomly with a tiny flower motif to remind me of my own wedding dress that had little pink flowers on it (Gosh - that takes me back!). I popped my lady up on foam tape and I love the shadow this creates around her 'cos it gives some dimension to what is a very simple card.The stitched panel is from My Favorite Things.

Why not pop over to the Simply Create Too blog to see some inspiration from the team and join us this month. You have until the 8th May to link your card, and we would love to see what you come up with.

I'd like to enter this into
