Here comes the bride... the wedding season is approaching,
todays post is all about wedded bliss,
 it's my friends turn to tie the knot now, so here is the card I have made...

The colour scheme she has set for her wedding is red and ivory
so I opted to use these colours for her card too.
These shimmery cardstocks are from my stash.
I have been very fortunate to have a little spending spree this week 
so I have had lots of lovely new thing to play and create with.
The heart design is a border punch by x-cut, I have had so much fun using it.

I just adore this cute little bride and groom image by lili of the valley.
I used cool grey 3 and shale promarkers to colour the groom, 
crimson red for the flowers in her hair
 and a small amount of 'crystal' stickles for the brides dress.

I decided to add some extra depth by using these gorgeous little red rose bud blooms for her bouquet.
These ones were sourced from my local craft shop.
The red on the stems is a small piece of felt from my stash,
with a little pearl to finish.

The flourish I have used is one by cheery lynn 'tropical flourish'.
Finished with red gems from my stash.

This flower is one of my new punches by x-cut, 
there is also a smaller version of this made by papermania.
Again I finished this with a pearl from my stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper Pretties challenge -  use a punch or die cuts

Whimsy Stamps challenge 27 -  monochromatic
