A summer wedding at The Outlawz

Good afternoon friends.
I said I would be back again today with my card for the colour challenge at The Outlawz.
This week the colour palette and inspirational photo was chosen by Roxann, with the twist being "A summer wedding".
 I found it a little bit of a challenge, in fact a big challenge, as these are not really traditional wedding colours, but I certainly am happy with the way it turned out.

This is what I used.
Paper...white shiny with a pattern, embossed with a Darice folder and then coloured with Pan Pastels, matted onto the darker blue card.
The die is a Marianne Design Creatable, also coloured with Pan Pastels.
Finished with a bow and some pearls.
It is fairly plain, but I think quite lovely and could be an anniversary or engagement card

 
Will enter the following challenges.

Enjoy the day/evening, wherever you may be. Take care.
Love Ursula
