Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop for April!  During this month we are focusing on Weddings and Anniversaries with Silver thrown in to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Stampin' Up!  I decided to focus on the Wedding portion, specifically an engagement.  My cousin Krista got engaged several weeks ago and my card to her is long overdue!
I recently fell in love with Pool Party and had to purchase the embossing powder!  I embossed this pretty dress on Basic Gray cardstock, layered it on silver sparkle paper and then put it on a piece of Pool Party using the Fancy Fan embossing folder.  
I just LOVE the Basic Gray and Pool Party together!

I love how the bow pops off the card!  There is a lot of dimension to this card - all of the layers are stacked using foam tape!  
The inside is simple so I have a lot of room to write something to my sweet cousin!

Basic Gray and PP do go really nice together :) I like how you matted with the glimmer paper and I think you have convinced me to order the Pool Party EP.

Pam, great card.. I love it! I have this set and I need to ink it up a bit. The pool party is so pretty with the glitter paper. Beautiful!
