Its a NEW Year with New Beginings for House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge HMFMC136

Hello House-Mouse Lovers!  
Im late, Im late....but here is my take for our new challenge over at House-Mouse & Friends MC. Come check us out HERE.  The Team is kicking off 2013 with an exciting line-up of amazing Sponsors offering lots of awesome prizes!! Dont miss out on playing along with our challenges for your chance to win some goodies!  

The first theme of the year was chosen by my Teamie, Christine Craig, and she's going with  a most fitting theme for this of year; ***New Beginnings ***. There are many things that can resemble a New Beginning, so the possibilities are endless. Check us out for loads of inspiration from our mega talented Design team and to see the challenge Details HERE

Weddings are always the start of a beautiful new beginning, (and I'm going to need a few wedding cards this year), so I hope my nice miceys don't scare off any brides to be.  LOL!!!
This is what I created...
In efforts to show you all the sparkle, here is the same card again, but with different lighting;
CARD RECIPE
Stamps: Stampabilities House-Mouse Designs Stamp called: "Playing Dress Up"  and Featuring (Amanda & Mudpie), #MHUR1044,  from the Year 2006.  And a Hero Arts Wedding Word Print Stamp for the BG.
Paper: Heavy Textured Cream CS, Glossy Cream Designer Paper for BG (brand unknown)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black,  Copics, Archival Brilliance Coffee Bean Ink (for sponging), White Marker
Accessories: Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles, Marianne Designs Frame Die, Nellie Snellen Heart Die, White Fabric Tulle, Lg Vintage/Antique like- Prima Flowers, Prima and Recollections Adhesive Pearls, Liquid Pearls, Foam Tape, K Marcella Wedding Dimensionals (sentiment), Stickles Glitters in Diamond, Frosted Lace and Stardust, Ultra-fine Martha Stewart White Glitter
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Layering

Both pics are dim, so my apologies for the bad lighting today...
  This card was meant to be vintage-y looking ..... LOL!! The edges of the die cuts are sponged to give the illusion of dimension.  Liquid Pearls adorn the top heart panel. The large Flowers and Amanda's wedding dress are also highlighted with Stickles Glitter and sprinkled with MS Ultra-fine sparkly white powder.
