A Quick Wedding Card and Sketch Saturday's 2000 Followers candy


Here's my second card using this Stamping Bella Bride and Groom. It's my favorite stamp set at the moment and I'm going to make lots more cards using this image.
The layout is inspired by the sketch over at Sketch Saturday. They also have some fab candies here as they've just reached 2000 followers - congratulations!

This card came together rather quickly. For the image I added some clear embossing powder to get those really crisp black lines. It also makes fussy cutting a lot easier as the lines are raised. The couple's clothes have been paper pieced. The bride's dress has got glitter on it.
The DPs are from Authentique. The sentiment is die cut and I added a red rose.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Sketch Saturday - #282 Sketch
2) Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C209 Card using Absolute Favorite Stamp Set
3) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
