Do You Like This Wedding Card??

I had an order today for a wedding card but they had no idea what they wanted or what colours, so I showed them a few papers and stamps and went with what they chose. Once I saw the lilac top hat on the papers I just knew that was the colour to go with and the bride's dress is ivory with lilace flowers but it doesn't show to well in the photo.
I used the 'Sketch' from this week's Create 4 Fun Challenge and found that this card also fits into three other challenges which are Passion For Promarkers who have the theme 'Anything Goes', Quixotic have the theme 'Emboss It' and Splitcoast Stampers Sugar Nellie have the theme 'Flowers'.
I created the flower using 5 flower shapes cut from on the cricut using accent essentials, 2 were cut at 1.75" and 3 were cut at 1.5".


Supplies:-
6" Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - Dovercraft 'Wedding'
Cardstock - Paper Mill Shop
Stamp - Sugar Nellie 'Happliy Ever After'
Medium - Promarkers
Die Cut - Cricut Sure Cuts A Lot 2
Embossing - Cuttlebug 'Hearts Block'
Flower - Cricut Accent Essentials 'Accent 32'
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Thread - DMC
Charm - Local Craft Shop
Stickles - Diamond Lace
Gems - Anita's Gem Wheel.

As you can see it is a little different and my customer loved it, I was unsure at first but once it was all together I really liked it. There is no sentiment on the card as the customer has ordered a stamp for it herself.

I know the feeling of discovering that something I've made fits several challenges. Nice to see you at SCS & I think this stamp has to go on the wish list. My favourite colours too & the bride's dress is terrific.
