Magnolia Bride and Bridesmaid

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week so far! A Magnolia Wedding Collection card today with the beautiful Bride and Bridesmaid stamp which I've water coloured with distress inks and cut out with a Nestabilities mega labels die. The background paper is by Magnolia and is punched with a Martha Stewart crown punch around the page punch then I've inked the edges of this, the die cut image and the card base with old paper distress ink. To decorate I added a ribbon that I inked with the distress ink, ruched up and attached with thin glue tape, some viva pearl and jewel pens, stickles, gold outline paste for the gold pearls and a pink pearl to the ribbon. 

I'm entering my card into the following chellenges:

Sir Stampalot - 'Punch it'
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - 'I do, I do, I do'

Thank you for your lovely comments, I always read and appreciate them.
