Ok so I have worked on this card for at least 6 hours!!  Maybe longer and yup I overdid it but it's for a special couple and a great challenge at Just Magnolia.  They've offered this sketch for this week and although it may be hard to see under all the embellishments, it's all there.  LOL!   I've used "Tilda and Edwin Get Married" bought from the Magnolia-licious online store and it's the first time I inked this stamp but I had a great time with it.  It turned out better then I had hoped!  Love it when a plan comes together!! 

I also used some amazingly beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Holi tolito them are niiiiice!!  Inexpensive and shipping is great!
