Wedding Blessings

September has been a very busy month for cards!  (And it's not even 1/2 way over yet)  My cousin is getting married next weekend and I was commissioned by my grandmother to make a card for her to give to my cousin.  Of course, I was happy to oblige.  It's so funny, some cards haunt me and take forever but some are almost effortless and this was one of them.  I had picked out the flower image that was a freebie from Create with TLC.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it though.  I went home and searched through my paper stash and found this sheet that had the exact same flowers on it!  Because of the way the pattern fell on the paper, I just winged the layout, and found a few more embellies that were in my stash and kept it relatively simple.  The flower I printed is colored with Copics, and I added some Copper Tim Holtz Stickles to the centers.  I cut them and popped them up with 3d dots to give some dimension.  Here is another view:

I really am so pleased how this came out (if I do say so myself!).  Haha.
Papers:  Prima Marketing - "Reflections" collection
Embellies:  Making Memories - "Vintage Metal Combo" charm, Recollections pearl swirl, Brads from stash, Hemptique crafter's cord - "metallic classic" (I love this stuff), Darice self stick gems (in the middles of some of the flowers)
I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Kaboodle Doodles - #136 Flowers
Make My Monday - Vintage Wedding
The Pink Elephant - 165 Wedding/Anniversary
Thanks for taking a peek!
