To Have and To Hold

Morning all,it's not often you see me these days unless it's a Sketch N Stash week but I've been busy making lots of things, just not had a lot of chance to share them with you.
Today I wanted to share a wedding card order that I recently made.
The brief was for a black and white/grey card featuring a bride and groom, with just a splash of red for the bride's bouquet and the groom's buttonhole, so this is what I came up with. It's an 8 x 8 card so I decided to make a box for it as well.
The image was googled and changed to greyscale in CAP2 where I also added the chandelier, floral corners and the scrolled paper frame containing their name.
I used Joanna Sheen's black Stardream card, lots of stickles for sparkle and finished off by using some lace, pearl embellishments and flowers from my stash.
The client was very pleased with the finished card so that was a relief!

I'd like to enter this into a couple of challenges:
Creative Corner Challenges - Wedding Bells
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
