Loving Bridal Couple. Anything Goes At Simply Magnolia And A DT Call!

Good morning, crafty bloggers.
We have a new challenge starting today at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is............... Anything Goes.
We also have a DT call so if you would like to be a part of this wonderful team then don't forget to enter.
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is;
The Ribbon Girl

My Mum asked me to make an 8" x 8" card for a couple who's wedding she is attending next weekend.
Here is the card.

I used Loving Bridal Couple from Wedding Collection 2010.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Joy Crafts Oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For the card base I used 300gsm white Conqueror card and Pressed In Time papers from LOTV.
Other dies used are La - La - Land heart doily border and filigree corner. Cheery Lynn french pastry doily, Marianne Designs clock, Sizzix Bigz heart, Joy Crafts Billes flourishes and Doohickey bloomy tag.
 I also used Marthe Stewart cherish around the page punch and woodland branches punch.
I have lightly sanded the papers and inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The lace across the bottom and the flat backed pearl lace trim are from The ribbon Girl and 
Wild Orchid Crafts.
The white shabby ruffle trim is from Live & Love Crafts.
The 5mm and 3mm white pearls are from Grafton Crafts.

Here is the bloomy tag removed form the corps mini bag.
The stamped sentiment is from LOTV.
I have addeed Frantage shabby white embossing enamel to each corner of the tag and threaded white string pearls and tied the bow with some lace that my Mum's friend sent me.
The silver heart charm is from The Ribbon Girl.

I used a selection of flowers from The Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts.
I cut out the letters for the names using Pion studio of memories paper and adhered them to a Sizzix heart. The butterfly is cut using Maja Design vintage Spring basics.
I set the hands on the clock to the time of the wedding. 1pm.

Here is a close up of Loving Bridal couple.
I sprinkled shabby white embossing enamel around the image and added Ranger white liquid pearls to the flowers in Tilda's hair and bouquet.
I dotted Tilda and Edwin's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated with Pressed In Time papers, Martha Stewart cherish around the page punched card and a Joy Crafts oval.

My Mum loved the card.
