Traditional Wedding Gown

Hey there lovely friends!!! I got in my "new to me" stamps from Bombshell the other day, and one of the ones I got was the gorgeous Lucky Bride. She reminds me of the lovely Spanish brides. Traditionally, the Spanish Wedding Gown was black, so I colored her up in lovely black satin. Then I added a touch of red to dress it up.  The greys are C1, 3, 5, 7, 9, the reds R22, 24, 29, 39. Her skin is E00, 11, 13 and her veil is BG0000 and E50. I chose t5o try to go pretty simple with just the silver paper behind and then adding the black bow with white flower and pearls.  The hose were a little plain, so I chose to try to mimic the swirls from the veil on her hose... and make it look like lace there as well.

I am entering this in a few challenges this week.
