Loves Rubberstamps - April Showers

Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps and this week's theme is April Showers -so show us either  Rain Showers, Wedding Showers, Bridal Showers, or  Baby Showers type cards. We have 2 special guest Sponsors this week; Eureka Stamps & Paper Nest Dolls. So this week I decided to do a wedding card using Flourishes 'Magnolias' and 'JustRite's Botanicals Medallions & Banners'.
You can find both these stamp companies in her store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_6/Stamps--Shop-by-Company.htm So I started off using white metallic paper for the base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I then used various white metallic paper,  white stripe metallic and light gold metallic papers for the rest. I laid down white stripe paper for my first layer and then used a piece of light gold paper that I ran thru a Cuttlebug embossing folder called 'Swiss Dots'. I then  cut out a frame using another piece of white metallic paper and cut it out using a Spellbinders die called 'Lacey Tiers' that was part of the Becca Feeken 'February Kit' by Amazing Paper Grace. I then ran the white metallic circle thru a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder called 'Damask'. I then cut out the circle overlay from the same die using light gold metallic paper. I stamped the largest Magnolia Stamp from the set called 'Magnolia's by Flourishes using black crafter's ink onto shimmery white paper. I then stamped the smallest Magnolia (3 times) from the same set again using black crafter's ink onto shimmery white paper. I colored the Magnolias using Prismacolor pencils and them out using scissors. I added some Bubblegum glitter on the Magnolias and Dazzling Rose on the buds which are exclusive to Sparkle N Sprinkle. I stamped the sentiment from JustRite Botanicals Medallions & Banners' using black crafter's ink onto shimmery white paper and used Pearl embossing powder by Clearsnap. I added some white organza ribbon along with a bow.
