Fun with paper doilies

Hello crafty peeps!
It's apparently a two post day today.

I created this card for my soon to be niece-in-law for
her bridal shower earlier this month.

and the inside:

I found some tutorials on Youtube in regards to folding paper doilies to make
a wedding dress. This was my second attempt, and I'm pretty happy with it.
I started by lightly sponging a pale blue ink through a stencil for the main
panel. Both the sentiment on front and back are computer generated.
Once I adhered the dress onto the front of the card, I added rhinestones 
for some pretty bling!

Thanks for visiting again! I should probably get off the computer and
do some housework. It may happen. LOL!
