Wedding Card with Bells

I made this card for my cousin who's getting married in two weeks. Her main color is pink, so I made this card with a lot of bling and a lot of pink just for her.

I started by making a 5x7 rectangle on my Gypsy. Then I layered the lacy circles until I liked the way it looked. I love that you can do a card layout right on the Gypsy. You can add more images and adjust sizes and edit without cutting anything wrong.

My mom owns the Sweetheart cartridge and I knew I wanted the bell image. So I pulled up the image on my Gypsy, adjusted the size the 2.25 (something I knew I could cut with the cartridge in my Expression) and sized the other pieces around the bells. When I borrowed the cart from my mom I cut the bells out really quick cause I already knew the size.

I used Glossy Accents over the layered part of the bell and covered it with Martha Stewart's glitter. Then I popped it up using dimensionals. The butterflies are glued down and popped up with dimensionals - I love doing both so they looks like they're flying. Bling around the lacy circles finished the card.

The inside sentiments are from Papertrey Ink and Stampin' Up. I hope my cousin likes her card. I know she will have a beautiful wedding.
