Heart2Heart Wedding Challenge

It's wedding week on the Heart2Heart Challenges Blog... and the design team has some wonderful inspiration for you!  We have a new guest designer playing with us this month, the talented Jena DeVries, so be sure to see what she has to show us this week.  If you play in the month of June, you have a chance to win one of two prize packs given out by Michelle Owen and Romaine Rancine, and you may be selected as one of our monthly Top Ten.  Just link up your project to the H2H blog, and be sure to use some CTMH product in your project.  For my wedding card, I went mostly white (not my usual thing!), kept the colours soft, and added a bit of bling:
I masked off the outside 3/8" around the card, and then stamped the Wings wotg background stamp in Versamark and then heat embossed it with some sparkly white embossing powder that I've had kicking around forever (it's actually called "Bridal!") - this pic doesn't show the irridescent sparkle of the embossing, so I'll make sure to add another one that does.  I used 2 different pinks for the flowers...and now that I think of it, this card reminds me a lot of my own wedding dress.  I wore a very pale pink gown, and made dozens of silk flowers in different shades of pink to sew onto it, along with pale green leaves!

Stamp sets are Wings, You're Invited & Our Wedding Day; Inks are Versamark, Grey Wool & Sweet Leaf; Cardstock is White Daisy, Baby Pink, Blush & Sweet Leaf; Opaque Pearls; - all CTMH. Nestabilities die. Bridal Embossing powder from Personal Stamp Exchange.

Love, love, love this! I love the background stamping ( any of the damask are so perfect for this!) and the flowers are divine. The sheen on the background is like old wallpaper! And I just discovered that i am not a follower, I have remedied that! :0) I have always admired your work!

Your card is beautiful! I can't decide whether I like the embossed background or the paper flowers better, so I'm going to say it's a tie.
