Allsorts challenge 25

A very good morning to everyone and being Saturday it's time for a brand new challenge from Allsorts , but before I tell you all about the new challenge I want to say a personal thank you to everyone who entered last week, we cracked the 100 mark and wow, what fantastic entries there were from you all.
This week it's Amanda's turn to select the theme which is "Weddings - anything from a wedding card to a piece of wedding stationery - invitations, thank yous, favour boxes, scrap book layouts, anniversary cards anything you can think of to do with weddings!'. So Amanda has left it fairly wide and given us lots of scope to play with. And of course there will be a prize for the winner selected at random plus our Top 5 who get to display our special blinkie.

There is quite a lot of stamping going on in my card, the main image is Penny Black 3996K Words Sweet.......but of an odd title as there are no words, but who am I to question. The background stamping is Hero Arts G3316 Harlequin, H2365 Old French Writing and F5042 Flourish all stamped with Brilliance Lavender and Thyme. The sentiment is from Tapestry Clear Word Plate 1 (Fancy Pens). To embellish a spray of roses, cord and pearls and a pearl added to the butterfly on the main image.
