Wedding Card + SOUS Card Sketch

Playing along at Stuck On You Sketches .

Here is their second card sketch...

This time I made a wedding card for a very dear friend  who is getting married in a few days. I'm really really happy for her. Our friendship goes a long way back, more than 20years...started our carrier together in the same hospital and worked at the same unit...

I have not made a wedding card for years, yay!! Here's my card:
 Best Wishes

Stuck the card inside a frame and took a photo...
but I think it does look good inside the frame too :))

  Surrounded the whole card (first layer) with pearls...
on the top layer, I used Sizzix Ornate Frame 
Hearts & Vines embossing folder
and cut it out using scallop scissors.

The paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle. 
I don't have a 'best wishes' stamp so I printed it from the computer.

there is one bird in the pattern paper itself, so I  attached another one.
the adhesive chipboard bird is from Studio 112 which 
I painted with Snow Cap acrylic paint and 
embossed using Ranger's holographic embossing powder.

For the flower, I put together...
 a lace - which I formed into a flower then added ribbons,
then topped it off with two kinds of fabric flower which I stuck together.
added other embellishes...and the card is done.

Cardstock - Bazzill; Papers - Little Yellow Bicycle (Swoon & Wedding March)
Embellieshments: Pearls from stash; laces, ribbons, fabric flowers (John Lewis store and from stash); Studio 112 adhesive chipboard bird; Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber - Snow Cap; Rangers Holographic Embossing Powder;
Prima adhesive pearls; Sizzix Ornate Frame Hearts & Vines embossing folder; Cheery Lynn Design dies - Lace Corner Deco F & Olive Branches

Mailed the card today and on the way to my friend.
I hope you like it what I have created.
Best wishes to all of you.
Keep the love alive!!!

Have  a great and inspiring day.
