Y is for... You & Me DT card

Morning everyone, well today is rather exciting as I am joining the
ABC Challenge DT for there next few challenges and today the challenge is 'Y is for.... You and Me'. You need to create a card or project with two images or two characters on it eg. a wedding or anniversary card etc. The sponsor for this fortnights challenge is the fab Wild Orchid Crafts

I have created this wedding card using the gorgeous 'Loving Couple' stamp from Magnolia and created a background scene using the 'Rose Arch' which I masked and then overstamped with the 'Butterfly Background' to create depth. I originally made this as a standard square card but decided it needed a little more, so I turned it into an easel card and added more paper a beautiful sentiment 'Wishing two people one wonderful life' from Magnolia and some roses which I spritzed with 'Cranberry Zing' Glimmer Mist. I also added loads of stickles to the roses some lace, organza ribbon and a little metal heart charm to finish.

Anyway I hope you liked my first DT card and I'd just like to say a huge thank you to the lovely Vicky from ABC for inviting me to join the team.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
