A Wedding Card for the TLC361

The TLC361 challenge today was to create a Belleek Pottery inspired card. I know I'll be needing a wedding card in a couple weeks, so this technique looked perfect for what I had in mind. I used a CB ef (I think it's called Victorian) and brayered the top with Ranger antique linen ink, then ran it through my machine to get this cool look. I started with PTI vintage cream card stock and left the sentiment panels plain for a little contrast. The sentiment is from SU! Ever After and I embossed it in gold. I edged the labels eighteen dies with a Marvy Deco gold paint pen, and did the outside edges of the card base too. The bow was made with my bow-easy, and the flowers w/pearls came from Walmart. Sorry for the wonky-colored photo, but this looks so much better IRL. It's very dreary today and artificial light just doesn't work very well for me :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a sunny day :)
