A wedding card for Sketch Saturday and Colour Create

Oh my goodness, have you seen the most delish colour combo on Colour Create this week!! I needed to make a wedding card and these colours are not what I would use on a wedding card but after making this I will definitely be using this combo again - love it!! I have used the fab sketch on Sketch Saturday, love Jo's sketches and try do each one that is posted (sometimes it's weeks later but I do try lol)
precious-moments-wedding-1
I found this HOTP Wedding pad lurking around in a pile of pads that were long forgotten - how delish are these papers! I embossed the plain coffee layer and also stamped the other layer with a small flourish stamp. I've even managed to use another of the Precious Moments set of stamps that have been lying in a drawer unused and unloved for months.

I carried the flourish stamp through to the inside, on the bottom layer and in the corner of the nesties layer.
