IC136 Bella Je t'aime

I used this gorgeous cake titled Bella for my inspiration today from Cupcakes by Vancouver.


IC136 Bella Je t'aime_SaK 001

My card is a top fold using soft sky CS, layered with vanilla and then stamped on Soft Sky. Images are by Innovative Stamp Creations Artsy Victorian and Nature Silhouettes I sheets. I inked them with Adirondack Pigment/cloudy blue and embossed with clear powder. They were then sponged with Adirondack Snow Cap to soften and define the detail. The lace and hand carved pearl slide were finds while antiquing this week. I finished it off with the Je t'aime ribbon from Artful Illusions, blue silk ribbon and flat pearls.
