Bride and groom

When I was in Poundland recently (about the one day when we had some respite from the snow!) I saw some wedding favour boxes and got some, thinking they might come in handy one day for something crafty. This is what they looked like:

And then I saw the current challenge on Cuttlebug Spot: 'Let's party!' and I knew that I just had to use them. And it so happens that a few other challenges are covered as well:

Squigglefly 31: 'anything but a card'
Kaboodle 22: 'anything but a card'
Twisted Thursday 39: 'hugs and kisses' - ABC - anything but a card - twist: Valentine's day
Our creative corner: '3D challenge'
Magical crafts fortnightly 6 'vintage style'
One stop craft 62: 'a night at the movies' - plenty of wedding theme films, e.g. Betsy's wedding
Jacksonbelle Tuesday: 'bling in the new year'
Humble pie 3: 'at least two different types of bling'
Crafty Ann 6: 'embossing'
Cuttlebug challenge be inspired 65: 'basic white theme'
Diva coffee break designs 160: 'basic black, whisper white, basic grey or going gray'
Saturday spotlight 13: 'love without hearts'
Creative Belli 82: 'glitter or rhinestones - both here
By the cute and girly: 'something new' - new beginnings with a wedding
Polka doodles week 2: 'love'
Creatalicious 6: 'no stamped images ...'

I ran the front of the dress through the cuttlebug with the d'vine swirls embossing folder and then added gemstones, silver ribbon round the wait and Stickles crystal ice across the top of the dress. I just added a few gemstones to the 'groom', leaving the emphasis of altering with the 'bride'.
