Another Silver and White One...

Hi Folks,

Tonight's card is another silver and white one, this time it was made for my nephew's wedding yesterday!  We had a super time at the wedding which was held in an country house hotel just outside Inverness and we wish the happy couple well for their future together.  The groom is from Rab's side of the family and it was nice to meet up with my sister in law's partner's family for the first time!  Len is one of seven so there was no shortage of new folk to meet lol!

My card is quite similar to the one I made recently for the Silver Wedding Anniversary we were at last weekend but I've gone for a stamped and embossed image this time instead of a die-cut.

The stamp I've used is by Indigo Blu, I've been hankering after something like this for a while.  I love this stamp range and I'm pretty sure this won't be my last purchase!  I stamped the image using a Versa Mark clear pad then heat embossed with silver Papermania embossing powder.  I've done the same with the LOTV sentiment too.  I've kept it quite simple with some die cut hearts made with a Stampin' Up Embosslits set then added a silver organza bow topped with a large gem.  White pearls and silver glitter dome stickers finish it off.
I think I've had enough of the white and silver CAS look for a while, I've been shopping in Hobbycraft today and bought loads of bright embellishments so expect to see something very bold and colourful from me next!!!
I wish to enter my card into the following challenges:
