LTSCB Challenge 32 "Holey Cardstock"

It's time for another challenge at the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog. I just got back from spending a week in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and wasn't sure I was going to get this one done in time. I was told that we would have wi-fi in our unit, but it wasn't working properly. I am uploading this at 1:00 am on Monday morning. I am sitting in the library parking lot using their wi-fi connection. Am I dedicated or what? Anyway, this challenge is being sponsored by:

The prize:

For this challenge you must make an opening for the stamped image to show through. You can use dies, punches, or hand cut. I am working with the image "Silhouette Bride and Groom" as well as the sentiment "To Have and To Hold". Here is my card:

To make my opening, I took the second biggest die from Spellbinders Floral Ovals set and placed it on the card base where I wanted it. Then I took a craft knife and cut out the inside of the die to make the hole. I took a piece of white cardstock and cut out the die, then cut out the inside of that one with the knife. This made my window. Using a hand sprayer, I sprayed a piece of lace with copic BG05. I ran a gathering stitch and gathered it. I hotglued the lace around the opening in the base and then glued the die cut on top of it. I added rhinestones on each side to glitz it up a bit. The sentiment and image were printed on coordinating cardstock. The sentiment is from the Spellbinders 5x7 scalloped  frame set. The image is cut using the floral oval die. Here is the inside of the card:

The inside looked a little plain, so I added a couple of bows. I traced over the bride with a clear Gellyroll stardust pen to add some glitter. The inside sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Hope to see you enter our contest.
