Going to the Chapel

My future sister-in-law's shower is this weekend so I need a card.  I love how it turned out.  She has chosen Seattle Seahawks colours for the wedding- lime, navy and white.  I don't have lime; the closest I had was Wild Wasabi.  I hand cut the dress and embossed it.  I hand-stitched the tuile and then covered the rough edges with the ribbon.  The sentiment is from My Favourite Things from their "Well Read" set.  I then printed "But how did my brother ever get to be a prince?"  on the inside. I really wish I had a crown stamp to put underneath the sentiment. I just couldn't resist a little jab at his expense.  What are sisters for after all?

Challenges this Card Meets:
Crafty Creations - KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweetie!)
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Glitter and Sparkle - Ribbon
Moving Along with the Times - Clean and Simple
Totally Papercrafts - Clean and Simple
Use it Tuesday - You can't touch this.  The tulle came from a bow from my wedding shower 8 years ago.  How's that for passing on the luck to the new bride?
Sentimental Sunday - For a Special Woman (My Future Sister-In-Law)
