A just in case card

As you might know I decided I would make some just in case cards, weddings get well sympathy etc the kind of cards you never have when you want one in a hurry.

I got my CC spring sugarplums kit a little while ago so I decided to make my first wedding card. I did some paper piecing so I could overlay with vellum . I used some embossed white pearl paper with flowers on for the base and outlined the flowers with sakura glitter pen and then squiggled the glitter pen on the vellum too to give subltle shine. I added little pearls again with a sakura glaze pen to her veil, dress and bow. I left the bow on the back of her dress uncovered to give the effect you may find on a real wedding dress. 

I used the same flower embossed paper as an imediate background along with another white embossed paper and some gold with silver bells card. The ribbon I overlaid on another white paper that has silvery pearl bobbles on. All the white papers came in a scrap book pack from costco ,the silver bells card is from qvc.

The roses were white ribbon that I coloured with my promarkers to match the image, they were fromJTF and the pearl are from hobbycraft. I hope it will be a card I could send to any happy couple for their special day, not that I have any weddings to go to that I know off but you never know what's around the corner do you?
