My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration - Wedding Day

Hello. me again.... 
As promised , here is my make for my Tuesday inspirational over at My Mum's Craft Shop....
Its a free week this week , and I chose to go with a wedding card...

I made the card base from my Go Kreate large scallop dies and cut out the DP with my Cheery lynn circle die. the paper is from the Bo Bunny "Primrose" pad

The topper is from the Wild Rose "Romantic panels" , and I used the Wild Rose "Leafy branch" die... I embellished with two flower punches from 2 of my oldest punches,adding heart  pearls and stickles. I popped on some lace too .The sentiment is from an old wedding stamp set...which I fussy cut out.
So thats it short and sweet.... I hope you like my inspirational make today... you can always see more over at the shop blog... and check out those new goodies arriving daily.....
