Weddings, weddings, weddings!

Hello all, I can't believe that it's been two weeks since my last post. I have been so busy and to be honest had lost my mojo a bit. In that time my best friend Lynn and I went for a promarker colouring class with Carlyann from Charisma cards. We had a fantastic time! Carly is such a super crafter and explained things so clearly that we came away feeling that with practice we will be able to colour a half decent image. Thank you so much Carly and we will be back in the new year for the next steps. In the meantime I hope you approve of the way I have coloured the image on this card.

Having not had any weddings for ages I have two in the space of a month which means cards to make!
This is my first card which uses a Mo Manning digi stamp which I first saw on a beautiful card by Debbie on her blog. Her card was so beautiful, it inspired me to have a go - thanks Debbie for the inspiration you are a very talented lady.
I used the sketch for the CLP challenge

The image is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Spectrum Noir.
The doily and swirls was made using  Marianne Creatables dies which I love.
The gorgeous papers are digi papers from Bearly Mine Designs again rapidly becoming a favourite of mine.
The flowers are from wild orchid crafts, although the baby's breath could well be from Hobby Craft as is the lace.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
Crafty Creations 3 or more punches or dies, (Nestabilities labels, doily, die, swirl die and Friskars border punch)
Bearly Mine Challenge Flowers, flowers, flowers.
A gem of a challenge - photo inspiration
