vintage wedding

Oh its been such a long time since i used this stamp and indeed its been such a long time too since ive indulged in such a fancy card.
I seemed to spend most of my crafting time designing for splodgeaway, and because their masks are so detailed you dont need to use an awful lot of embelishments on your cards, but now ive given up my design team position its back to very pretty over embellished cards, its was great letting myself go adding more and more to this card.
The stamp is lili of the valley, coloured with distress inks, lots of flowers from wild orchid crafts the papers are October Afternoon, lots of diamond stickles have been added for a little bling. All the blending on the papers were acheived using the amazing SplodgeAway mat. 

The distress inks ive used are:
waethered wood. black soot, broken china, walnut stain, tattered rose, fired brick and mowed lawn.
