Monday again already...where's the weekend gone!and a wet,grey and dull one at that,looks like i will be doing alittle crafting then :0).
On to the card,which i'm not too happy starts a new challenge over at POLLYCRAFT,hosted this week by Marit,she's set the theme of DIAMONDS AND PEARLS....lovely theme and i'm sure loads of you will join us on this one.
For my card i've used an image from one of the mini dooodles sets "MR and MRS".....there's no colouring but i've added plenty of glamour lots of sparkle (which is not showing up in the photo).
I've used two Craft Concept embossing folders to create the background...."In Stitches" and "Gem Flourish" the in stiitches one i've added self adhesive gem stones and the other one i've used the embossing as a guide for my self adhesive pearls....i think it's this part of the card i'm not too happy with.
The sentiment is also from the same mini doodles set and ribbon from stash to finish.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :-
SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY....fabby sketch again this week Arlana.
CHALLENGE UP YOUR LIFE (Sat)....Monochrome.
CRAZY 4 CHALLENGES (Sat)...Dies...i've used Spellbinders oval nesties.

I think the card is great, it's a prefect wedding card. It reminds me of one I made awhile ago for a swap and I went through a few prototypes before I was happy with mine. I played with the pearls but it was the papers on mine, they weren't working with the black cs. I think on yours the cs and the pearls look perfect, I'd be happy with it, but then aren't we our own worst critics.
