And now a bit about my project.  I used the digi version of Happily Ever After so that I could adjust the size of both sentiments and the image.  I printed the sentiments on vellum and heat embossed them with Clear embossing powder.

 Green Iris glitter was used to highlight the roses and Bridal glitter was added to the veil.

I also printed the image twice so that I could fussy cut out the bouquet of flowers and pop dot them.  Copics were used to color the image.

The pocket tag is a Spellbinders die (Cascading Grace Pocket).  I die cut the pocket from white cardstock and then used the Glueless Glitter technique to add Bridal glitter to the front.  The tag topper was also die cut from textured foil cardstock using the same die set.

 Once you remove the tag, the second sentiment is revealed.  You could add your personal message to the back side of the tag.

 I'm the last stop on the SNS January Reveal Blog Hop.  Be sure to comment on each of the Designers' blogs for your chance to win all five of the new stamp sets revealed in the Blog Hop.

Happy 2016 everyone!
