My niece is getting married!  Elizabeth is one of my sister Rhonda's daughters.  She is getting married to a pretty great guy.  Since they live so far away I don't get to see her very often at all.  I'm looking forward to going to her wedding.  My daughter Alicia is her Maid of Honor.  She is so excited to be in the wedding and she looks absolutely awesome in her dress.  They are having her bridal shower today and I couldn't go.  There was no one to take care of my little doggies.  Thankfully we have found someone to take them for the wedding.  

This beautiful bride comes from Sassy Studio Designs.  There challenge this week for Dare To Be Sassy Thursday was a sketch.  Sketches are my new favorite thing to do.  I just love them.  I colored this beauty with Whisper Strokes and Stampin' up markers, Stickles by Ranger and two white paint pens.  The papers are from Bazzill, The Paper Co., DCWV La Cre`me Stack and my box 'o scraps.  The brads are from Stampin' Up.  The corner punch is an EK Success punch.  

I have entered into the following challenges:

Dream Valley #29 - Wedding/Love
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #134 - Something celebratory
Splendiferous Creations - Black, white/vanilla and a splash of one other color
Card Makin Mamas - Make it girlie
Delicious Doodles - Loads of layers
My Mum's Craft Shop #52 - It's a celebration
Wags 'n Whiskers #77 - Anything goes
Gingerloft - Black, white and a touch of red

I really hope she likes her card.  I hope you like it too.  Thanks for stopping by.
