Whiff of Joy Wedding Carriage

My daughter asked for a card with this gorgeous WoJ stamp for a friend who's getting married. I always have a lot of trouble stamping this image, for some reason part of the greenery never wants to show!

I'm entering the Whiff of Joy Challenge whose theme is 'Love is in the Air.'

I used Promarkers, natch, and gold glitter on the bride's headdress and on the flowers, and liquid pearls on the hearts. The flowers (Wild Orchid) have been sprayed with glimmer mist, which doesn't show in the picture at all, chiz. The ribbon is also sparkly - unfortunately my embellies have more or less covered the MS hearts border, but it's the thought that counts. The fabulous DP is from Bearly Mine Designs

The leaves were punched from some gorgeous gold paper which I found while having another Grand Tidy Up, and the pearls are from stash.

Edited to Add: I forgot to say that I went over the edges of the papers with a gold ink pad to give a bit of definition!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you're all having a lovely Valentine's Day with lots of choccies!

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Tan, Cinnamon, Cocoa; Buttercup, Ivory; Ice Grey 2 and 3; Leaf Green, Lush Green, Lavender, Orchid, Amethyst, Pearl Blue
