Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 44 - A Royal Wedding

With a certain wedding coming up soon, over at Crafty Cardmakers we decided to have a right royal theme for this week's challenge.  We are giving you the option of using RED, WHITE & BLUE (these must be the most prominent colours) AND/OR a Wedding card or creation.  The fabulous Joanna Sheen is our sponsor again this week and offering a £10 voucher for her online shop.

I have decided to do a Wedding Card and I started with the lovely bride image from Lilac Lemon Designs (Art Deco Set 1).  I watercoloured her with Stampin' Up inks and added Sakura Stardust pen to give her some bling.  She was cut out with a round Nestability and matted onto silver card.  The aqual bg paper is from Create & Craft Rose papers and the fabulous swirly bg paper is from my talented friend Ei's Roseheart Digi set.  I then added the ribbon, some pearls and, of course, her bouquet (flowers from Wild Orchid).
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenge:
Digital Tuesday - Little Women (digi papers)
Crafts and Me - Ribbon
A Gem of a Challenge - Pearls and Swirls
Polka Doodles - Tie the Knot
Mejen's Designs - 3 colours (aqual, white, silver), 2 patterned papers and a bow
Scrapbook Sisters - Wedding or Anniversary
Happileigh Scrappin' - A Royal Challenge
