A Wedding Card!

Good afternoon all!
I hope everyone is well & looking forward to the weekend!
We're heading off out to a wedding tomorrow.
 I thought I'd share the card I made with you all!

I used a white linen embossed square card blank for the base.
The image is Bethy's Wedding from Mo Manning 
I think it's just perfect for a summer wedding!
 I used my Promarkers to colour it up!
I then cut it out with a scalloped square nestie.
The layout was my own & the papers are from a candy I won!
I used a coordinating paper to matt the design papers on to!

To compliment the papers, I added a small Swirls embossed border.
 I distressed this using Tim Holtz Distress ink.
I added some ribbon from my stash which I tied round, finishing with a bow.

I added a little arrangement of flowers & leaves  which are from Sweet Pea Polly's 
& I tucked a little bow underneath

The cute little ticket sentiment is from The Crafty Pad Designs.
I used a Promarker to highlight & distressed the edges with ink.
I added the  little rose, just to balance things out!
Thanks for looking, I hope you like it!
