Here Comes the Bride...

Hello; my one and only niece was married this last weekend. So I wanted to do a special card for her and her new husband. I've been agonizing over what to do for weeks now. I actually colored two LOTV images as possibilities, but I kept coming back to this one. I colored this with my prismacolors and then used stickles on the veil and dress. The colors for the wedding were light blue and black. I thought an easel card would be something that they could enjoy for some time. Of course, as you can see, I am late getting it to them. Here's a little closer look at the front of the card. And this is a closeup of the LOTV image. I really enjoyed coloring it. And I even gave the horse a star and spots. I know she didn't have pink or red roses, but I had to take a little liberty, since I didn't want the whole thing white.
The papers and buttons came from my stash. I used my nestibilities to make the ovals. The baby bows , as well as the ribbon are some I got online; the white roses are by Recollections; which I also used stickles on. The sentiments and their labels are from the cd "Love and Cherish" by Polka Doodles. (I've put their names on the back of the card, too, using this cd.) The border punch is by MS.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Stamps R Us Challenges - sparkles and scallops
Papertake Weekly - punched out items
Lili of the Valley - sketch and lotv image
Cute Card Thursday - blast from the past #99 - in the name of love
Moving Along With the Times - more than one fold

Thanks for looking, and I hope you will leave me a comment.
Hugs,
