Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Diamonds are Forever!

Hello everyone...
Today is one of those unseasonably warm days for winter - 40 degrees, but they are talking about a cold front coming in tonight with temps below zero degrees for most of the coming week.  Brrrrrrr... I'm planning on staying inside tomorrow, which means I can work on my cards!  My card for today is for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Diamonds are Forever.    Suggestions were for a diamond anniversary card, wedding or just a card with a lot of bling.  I went with a wedding card.  Normally, I make A2 size cards, but for wedding cards I usually go bigger.  I have a stash of 5 x 7 envelopes just for this purpose.  If you check out my blog you probably notice l like to use whimsical or cute type images.  I went more traditional with this card.    

Here is my card.

The back panel was stamped with a flourish stamp.  It was one of the first stamps I bought.  I don't have the packaging anymore, so I can't tell you what stamp company it was from.  It's hard to see in the pic, but I colored her veil & dress with a B000 Copic marker to give it a shadow effect.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up and I actually bought this set just for this sentiment.  I love how the "o" is made to look like a ring, so I added some bling to look like a diamond.

Here is the same card done in gold.

Here are the details...

Rhinestone from my stash
Silver Gel Pen
Skin: E000, E00, E21
Hair: E30, E31, E33, E35

Just want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments.  I read them all and it gives me a chance to visit your blogs.  I love to see what everyone else is doing.  There are just so many creative people out there.

That's it for today.
Until next time...
