Quadruple Challenge Princess Bride Card

This is a QUADRUPLE Challenge card...whew!

I KNEW when I saw the sketch and the Cinema Saturday theme EXACTLY WHAT I wanted to do...now I've never seen the Princess Bride movie, and I KNOW you can watch it online, however I have turtle speed internet service...and I mean some blogs I click on ... go do dishes (by hand) and come back and it "might" be up... so I didn't bother to download the movie and watch it online, so I ran with the "bride" theme.

I used no dp in this card...it's completely handstamped! The dress in this card is recessed and the scalloped border has been pushed out for a nice layered effect (another angle is below to show this better). Since I didn't have any complimentary paper that matched my color choices, I made my own by sponging ink onto the creamy cardstock. The sentiment in the upper left hand corner was made with my nestabilities, and flowers (just like in the lower right hand corner) that I folded up and sewn shut, I added some Martha Stewart Branches and a Butterfly and some Stickles and Rhinestones to match! Below in the lower right hand corner, I layers MS branches with some pip berries I had left over from another Christmas project and paired the flowers with some ring embellishments brought home from a wedding reception favor. The ribbon seen has also been inked so that it matched. Hope you enjoyed...recipe specifics are below!
