Domi's Wedding Challenge at Simon Says - and a few others!

Hi all
Oh my word it is sooooo cold here today - I hope you are warmer wherever you are in the world!!
So onto my card for today's post.  I noticed that the lovely Domi is soon to marry her fiance Uli and that Lorraine at Simon Says decided to do a challenge to make a wedding card for the both of them and post it off.  So I had a digi stamp in mind to use and set to work.
I used the current sketch at Moving Along With The Times which I have shown below:
I have made the area for the image a little bigger as I have used Die Cuts recently purchased from Die Cut Dreams, so here is the card I made:
The backing paper is from a Papermania pad called Exquisite and I thought it was just right.  The image I have used is called Jr Bride and Groom and is from Judy at Digi Doodle Shop.  I used watercolour pencils to colour in the groom apart from his shoes where I used a Sakura Gelly Glaze pen so as to make them look shiny. 
For the bride I used promarkers for the bouquet and her hair and watercolour pencil for the dress.  I only coloured the crease lines in the dress and head dress as I just wanted a hint of colour - like the sun catching the material.  I cut out the image and embossed it on the back to make it stand out a little and then fixed it to the white die cut panel with silicone.  I also used silicone to attach the white die cut panel to the lemon one and then added a small lemon bow at the top.  I used white and lemon flowers in opposite corners and two yellow flower gems at the other opposite corners.  I am quite pleased with how it turned out in the end and I hope Domi and Uli like it.
The other challenges I shall enter this card into are:
CRAFT Challenge - Wedding/Birthday
Charisma - All about Weddings
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Anything Goes
As always it would be nice to know what you think of it so please leave me a comment and let me know.
