Bespoke Wedding Card

Hi Folks!
Hope you are enjoying the great weather we are having this Bank Holiday Monday. A friend at work is attending a wedding today and asked if I could make the card. I followed a few challenges for inspiration. The sketch is by the talented DawnyP over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge. Cute Card Thursday has set a theme of 'New Beginnings' and my friend Chris, the Sketching Stamper, has chosen this weeks colours (Ruby, Cream & Gold) on the Colour Create Challenge... I just had to join in this week!
There's lots of Gold Mirri board on this card, all of the matts and the die cut corners in fact. I've used scraps of red patterned paper for matting and for the Martha Stewart border punched layer. The cream card is pearlescent and I have embossed the large layer with a Fiskars texture plate. The lush ribbon was part of my birthday pressie from San (thank you!xx) and I used my Xyron Design Runner (Engraved Font) for the sentiment. The characters are my much loved Hanglar Wedding couple. I have coloured them in with Copic Markers and added a touch of glossy accents to the groom's bow tie and shoes.
Ciao for now!
