Caarvarks Wedding #2

Hi there, I wanted to submit another card for the Caarvarks challenge to get published and this is what I came up with. Something really, really easy!
I wanted to use this cream and black patterned paper from K and CO. and accent it with a colour. I think I probably should have used the green that I had out, but I decided at the time to use this Aqua Mist from PTI. Well, I can always make another, but for now it's the Aqua...after all, the colour of the year that was chosen a few weeks ago from Pantone is Turquoise, very close to Aqua? ;) so I'll just be content with it!

I made the card base out of the black and white dp and then put a slightly smaller piece of the Aqua Mist through the CuttleBug and a ferns and "floral fantasy" folder, adhered to the front and then made a rectangular panel from PTI Vintage Cream, stamped the SU Well Scripted sentiment in Memento Tux. black ink and used the Martha Stewart loops border punch on the top and bottom.
Then the fun began with making the flowers. I used CuttleBug flower dies and the same pattern paper, black card stock and aqua that I cut various flowers from and plyed with stacking them in different ways and adding a pearl in the center that I had coloured with a brick beige Copic marker to take the edge off of the white.. I loved creating these embellishments and like knowing that they are a little unique! I made 4 total and used one of them as a little platform for the smaller "Mr. & Mrs." sentiment. This sentiment is also SU from the Fancy Flexible phrases.
Well, that's it for now and the contest ends tonight for the wedding cards...
Thanks for peeking in and have a great evening!
