Totally Gorjuss 40 Congratulations

Congratulations girls, that's what we want to see at Totally Gorjuss this week.

I decided to do a wedding card this week. I love this image and it really was time it saw some ink. I used Memento ink in London Fog because I wanted a really soft image.

I used :-
Image :- LOTV.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
DP :- GCD Ella Blue.
Flowers :- Wild Orchid Crafts.
Colouring :- Promarkers and Distress Inks.
Pearls :- the Hobby House.
Ribbon from stash.
I love this image and I've been wanting to use it for ages so this challenge gave me the opportunity. I used cream pearlised card for the base card and stamped the image onto the same card and cut out with a scalloped nestie. All edges inked with DIs in either Antique Linen or Stormy Sky.
I'm going to enter some challenges with this card :-
Sketch and Stash :- Sketch and image and DP are both new stash.
Paperplay :-Blue, cream and one other colour - grey.
Wild Orchid :- Flowers.
Stamp Something :-Something flowery.
Create 4 Fun :- Use flowers.
I hope you can find time to tell me what you think of my card, it's good to get feedback! My talented teamies have made a variety of congratulations cards and if you have time they'd love to hear from you too.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and the weather's nice wherever you are. I'll be sure to pop in and see how you've interpreted our challenge this week.
Edited to add that I inked round the petals of these gorgeous Wild Orchid flowers with DI. I did have blue but I thought just a blue edge would be nice! And we're sponsored this week by the very well named Fantastic Ribbons. Who doesn't like ribbon? Definitely worth joining us this week.
