The Card Concept Challenge #47

Hello my stampy friends!
It is time for a NEW challenge here at 

I was immediately inspired by the textures in this inspiration photo!
Isn't that cake GORGEOUS!!!!!

Here is my card:

I decided to make a beautiful Wedding card!

I  pulled out my Pearlescent embossing paste and SS Waves stencil to add texture. When it dried, it left this beautiful shiny background.

I was also inspired by the flowers and leaves on the cake.
Following the challenge colors, I stamped and fussy cut lots of flowers and leaves from my PTI Twig Wreath stamp set.  I added foam tape to some of the flowers to add more dimension.

And of course, I added a pretty bow! All wreaths have to have a pretty bow!

I hope you will play with us here at The Card Concept!
The team is divided into the different styles and each designer explains how they were inspired by the challenge!   The styles are explained HERE.
So come and join us and try your hand at a brand new "style" or work in your comfort zone. It is totally up to you!

Please visit my teammates for some great inspiration!
