Lilies for Stephanie

So I've been working on a wedding card for my SIL to give to her niece and I've finally come up with the final version.  Stephanie loves lilies and she loves the color pink, so here's a wedding card I think she'll love!  The photo doesn't do it justice, it definitely is a soft pink, but has much more color than shows below.  As well, it's hard to tell, but I have done rubber band embossing (white on white) on the background paper and there's a white satin ribbon across the middle of the card.  Not shown is the inside of the card.  I made a framed panel of white with pink pirouette and white (so three layers).  I embossed a second stamping of the lilies and colored just the bottom one with some leaves, cut it out and mounted it on the inside panel (bottom right) - it makes the inside as beautiful as the outside!   Hope you like.

I stamped the lilies in Versamark onto Whisper White cardstock (twice) and quickly heat embossed it in white.  I colored in the lilies with Stampin' Write marker Pink Pirouette and the leaves with Certainly Celery.  I took a small eye-makeup sponge and added Pretty in Pink ink to the middle of all the petals of the lilies.  I colored in the stamens with a Rose Red Stampin' Write marker.  As mentioned above, I did a second embossing and colored in just the bottom lily with some of the leaves.  Then I cut both the lilies out (the small one for the inside of the card).

I rubber band embossed (see techniques page for instructions) the background Whisper White cardstock with white embossing (very subtle).  I then mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture, popping up the main framed panel with dimensionals.
