Here Comes the Bride - {PPA93} challenge

Hi there everyone... well today my post is for the Pals Paper Arts "Here Comes the Bride" challenge, and here is the inspiration photo.... oooohhh so pretty.
My wedding stamps are very limited, but here is my card. 
It really is much prettier in person than it's showing here, so use your imagination. I started with a crumb cake card base, than punch the corners with a double rounder. The next layer is a very vanilla stamped with an image from the "Blissful Bride" set. I colored the bow on the dress with a blushing bride write marker, then run through the BS with the square emboss folder and added a tiny pearl the center of the bow. 
 The next layer is vellum card stock embossed with the new "Flower Garden" emboss folder which I colored with a touch of crumb cake ink, then tore the edges before attaching.
Next I stamped the sentiment from "Happy Greetings" in crumb cake in on very vanilla cs and punched with the decorative label punch. I punched a second label from some gold tissue paper and beefed up the back with a third label in cs.
 I colored a small rosette with the blushing bride write marker and added another pearl to the center of the rosette.
Here's a peek at the inside using touches from the front.
Then I stamped the envelope.
Hope you liked my card today.

Wow, Diane this is so beautiful! I really like all of the beautiful layers and textures you used. The little "pops" of color are perfect, too. Such a great wedding card! Hugs! :)

Wow this is really gorgeous - all of the embossing - the bit of pink - fabulous! (These colors are so hard to photograph I know) Love the vellum....and those notched corners are a sweet little detail!

Very pretty wedding card Di, lots of details, the vellum, the cut out image from the embossing folder, the pink coloring and the inside with more embossing. I really like the sentiment stamp too. Good luck in the challenge.
