Wedding card

Hiya! I hope you had a good weekend! Mondays don't seem quite so bad when they're this sunny, do they? :-)
Over the weekend I had a little play with these Avery Elle stamps, I used a technique Jennifer McGuire (love her!) showed in a video (here) about dabbing the ink off stamps to get 2 tone images. I used it for the flowers then leaves and couldn't seem to stop so I did it on the sentiment too! I chose the colours to tone in with this gorgeous paper.
Its for this weeks Less is More challenge of Flowers, along with Avery Elle's challenge of Botanicals. I also used the current CAS(E) this Sketch. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Stamps - Avery Elle 'Thanks a Bunch'
Sentiments - Clearly Besotted 'Love Blossoms'
Paper - Carta Bella 'Hello Again'
Inks - Stampin' Up - 'So Saffron', 'Crisp Cantaloupe', 'Pear Pizzazz' & 'Old Olive'
Other - clear gems & Wink of Stella clear
