White Glamor - Wedding Gown Inspired Card

This card is for SCS Inspiration Challenge IC369 to make a card inspired by something on the Wedding  Bells site and I chose this picture of a wedding gown as my inspiration. I'm not big on yellow gold when it comes to my jewelry or even card making but in this case the touch of gold on the wedding dress caught my eye and I thought it'd be perfect to emboss a background stamp.

 Handmade card, all white with shimmery carstock and embossing

The "skirt" of the card is vellum that I first sprayed with shimmer and then ran through embossing folder. It's hard to see from the picture but the sentiment on the tag is embossed with iridescent powder and the edges are embossed in gold. I didn't have any gold cardstock to layer on my tag so I improvised with the gold embossing by layering a smaller circle punch inside the tag and then running my Versamark pad along the exposed edge. Couldn't decide wither to add the swirls or not, but I may do a more clean variation on this later. Thanks for visiting.
