Día de Los Muertos

I couldn't resist this too cute freebie from Stamps by Aurora Wings.  I love Halloween and I love making wedding cards, so Day of The Dead style sprites are just perfect for me.  I used to dream about having the full-on white wedding, but as I got older I changed my mind to a themed wedding. I actually had a Chinese-inspired theme, but I think a Day of The Dead theme would be amazing. 
The Facebook group has a colouring challenge for this image, but I couldn't stop there... I had to make a card too!
This is my very first bridge card.  I don't know why I haven't made one before as they're so easy.

  12. Loooove it!!!! I was thinking of how this would be a perfect image for this challenge and surprise surprise...you were thinking the same thing!! The cool thing is that a wedding can be either a dream or a nightmare - depending on your perspective, lol. Love this fold, and the fabulous attention to detail that you've put into this card. Thanks so much for sharing with us at AWCB <3
