Wedding Bells

This card I have made for four challenges which are:
It is fortunate that my niece is getting married in August as I will need a few cards for family members to use and these challenges have given me a reason for making one or two so I won't be in a rush at the last minute lol.
I have used an 8x8 white base card onto that I have mounted cream card with V&A Linen Paper, I then cut three strips of the same cream card and attached some brocade ribbon which I have had for a few years now.  The image is H&S coloured very lightly with Vanilla promarker as I just wanted a tinge on the bride's dress the same with the groom.
The bottom bouquet is my first real go at a flower arrangement so I think I have to practice lots more I tied a lacy bow around the stems. The flowers at the top are from Wild Orchid I have also attached a little heart charm, the look alike brads are card candy. 
Below is a closer view and if you leave a comment please tell me what you really think of this one.  Big hugs see you later.

Really elegant Lorraine and a great take on Amanda's sketch.

That paper is gorgeous, I've been looking everywhere for some suitable for wedding cards. Most are very bright adn whilst I love colour, for weddings paler ones are ideal.

Thanks for joining in at Allsorts again this week.

Have a good weekend.
