Civil Partnership and Doily Dresses!

Hi everyone from a much brighter day today - the rain is holding off for a bit so the sunshine is out here for a little while :)  I love this time of year and the colours of the leaves, but the light makes for a hard time taking photos of my crafty makes, even during the daytime. 
I grabbed a bit of sunshine when I took photos for this card so the texture of the card came out well!

this is the first Civil Partnership card I had to make and I saw the idea for the doily dresses ages ago, had never tried them and decided I just HAD to make them!  I used an XCut doily die, parchment paper and used the tutorial found HERE 

Some more photos showing the bunting - the bakers twine was threaded through each little 'flag'

To make the top bodice part of the dress, I used two spellbinders oval dies side by side and cut through a layer of white card and parchment (the parchment had already been put through the doily die) and then a spellbinders heart shaped die to cut the top neckline shape.

Ribbon and pearls to finish the dresses...

Love the light feel of the parchment paper.

Thanks for stopping by, hope this card inspires you to tackle a more challenging marriage card yourself!
