Wedding Card

This is the card that I made for our neighbors.  They will be getting married this Saturday.  The sketch I used is from Card Patterns.  The base of my card is moonstone card stock.  I added a strip of dark aqua card stock. To the bottom of the strip I added a piece of black card stock that I punched using a heart lace border punch. To the top of the strip I added a piece of black ribbon.  The image I used is Kissy Kissy from The Greeting Farm.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I cut the image out in a circle, backed it in black card stock and then cut around it with scalloped scissors.  I added a swirl of black pearls to the right of the image.  I added a white paper daisy to a pink paper flower and added it to the right of the image.  I added a white daisy above the pink flower  and a white daisy below the pink flower. In the center of each white daisy I added a black pearl. I also added crystal stickles to the white flowers and finished off the card by adding 3 black pearls to the corner.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
