Wedding Day

Well, continuing on the wedding theme, this is the 8x8 card that I made for our team to give a colleague who is getting married today.
I used a Stamping Bella stamp that I coloured with my copics to match their hair colours and groom's suit colour and I added a little glamour dust to her dress. I used a mix of centura pearl, soft gold and navy cardstock and the A4 tied together embossing folder. I managed to stick the embossed layer down at right angles to the way the pattern normally runs, but it gives a slightly different look. As is the law with that embossing folder, I added pearl nuvo drops to the intersections. I think the oval dies are Spellbinders, but no idea which ones! I die cut the letters for the names from soft gold card using a crafters companion alphabet set.
Loads of flowers and pearl loops in the colours of her bouquet to finish from Wild Orchid Crafts, along with a few Sue Wilson ivy leaves.
My colleague opened the card in the office on her last day, which happened to be my day off. I got a lovely text message from her thanking me for the card and saying that her Mum thought it was amazing, and saying they were going to display it at the wedding. Fingers crossed that it stays dry for her today.
