Pearl Wedding Card in Monotone (warning Picture overload)

Wow it is nearly weekend gosh the week has disappeared so quickly. Today see another challenge at CRAFTY CATZ set by the lovely Linda and she would love to Monochromatic project/cards.
Our sponsor for this challenge is the fab digital company
Digital Delights who are kindly giving the winner 3 digital images
For my card this week I had to make a special card for a friend. It is her sister's Pearl Wedding Card. As she didnt want a card with flowers this set me into a panic.

I used heart diecuts from Janette my teamie, along with a memory box corner die and a cherry lynn flourish.  Printed the details in pearl card and cut to mount. Dusted a heart doily with mica powder for the shimmer. Added a prima swirl and some extra pearls. DP has a lovely satin shimmer from Create and Craft, bought from a garden centre few years ago but kept for that special card. Ribbon and lace from a local shop.

Kept the inside fairly plain but with elements to match the from with the cherry lynn die and the DP.

Bunny Zoes Crafts - swirls & pearls
Paper Crafting Journey - pearls & swirls
Crafts & Me - ribbon & Bow
