black and white wedding

Summer is the time for many weddings and in our family we have 2 this year, my step nieces in late august and later in the year my niece.

This first card is for my step niece and I decided to stay with black and white as that was the colour of her invitations. The image I used was a freebie in a swap and unfortunately I have no idea of the make as it wasn't written on it. It reminds me a bit of seaside charactuers but cute at the same time.I like how the doves finish the scene and the cute little hearts as they admire each other with doey eyes.
I added 2 peel off hearts to balance the image once framed and the sentiment was already on the image so I'm not sure if its all part and parcel or was added  by the stamper who sent it me.

I rounded all the corners of the card and layers with a corner punch for a softer look.
I completed the card with different matting and layering of embossed white and black papers and a couple of gems from my stash topped off with black and silver ribbon and a hand tied double bow.
