Autumnal Wedding - Hanglar & Stanglar - Multiple Challenges

I have created this card for a wedding coming up in November. The brief was to create an elegant card large enough for many people to sign, using a cute stamped image. I wasn't given a colour scheme so decided to go with autumnal which fits in to this weeks challenge over at Everybody-art-challenge.blogspot.com. I knew the image would look great coloured in shades of brown and cream and layered with gold mirri and copper stardream paper. I love to use punches on my cards. The one used is from Craft Habitat. It's perfect for adding elegance to a design and has made the flower look very delicate. It also enables me to join in with this weeks challenge over at Daring Card Makers - Getting punchy with it. This week over at Simon Says Stamps Challenge blogspot the theme is all that sparkles. To get some sparkle into my design, besides using gold mirri card, I have used a metallic edge satin ribbon and edged a tag with gold foil. The image has a few dots of stickles on it. Finally to bring it all together I have used last weeks sketch over at Friday Sketchers Challenge Blog. Items used: Card/ Paper - Stardream Bronze card 21 x 21cm, Stardream Copper paper, Stardream Quartz paper, Gold Mirri, Hot off the Press - 8x8" Wedding Paper Pizazz Rubber Stamp - Hanglar & Stanglar Bridpar2 Medium - Copics - E000, E00, E21, E33, E35, E43, E47, E49, E50, E51, E53, E57, 0 Distress Inks - Ranger Brushed Corduroy Gold Foil Embellishments - Rose buds Ribbon Pearls Dies - Spellbinder Flowers Embossing Boards - Cuttlebug Textile Thanks for taking the time to look and please leave a comment if you have time.
