My best friend's wedding...

...well not really but it is the title I have used for this card for the challenge over at Fussy and Fancy which is Movie themes. First time inking this little stamp up from Lili of the Valley and I just love it. The papers are all digi papers, stitched on the sewing machine.
Made the flowers from scraps of the papers, scrunched and glittered and added those lovely sparkly brads and punched leaves. I coloured the image using Distress Inks and added some glitter and a sprinkling of flowersoft. I embossed one of the panels in the background and finished with some peel off corners and hearts. I am entering this into these challenges;
1. Sweet Stampin Challenge - followed the lovely sketch
2. Crazy 4 Challenges - 3 textures (embossing, flowersoft and stitching)
3. One Stop Crafts - Optimisticaly pink
4. Saturday Challenge - stitching
5. Fussy and fancy Friday - movie theme
