Sugar Bowl challenge 61

Yep,  it's that time again, the next Sugar Bowl challenge for you all.
This time the sketch is by the lovely Kiki and the theme is love/marriage.
This is my take on it:

And the sketch:

I have used the new digital image from Sugar Nellie called Summer.
The papers are from My Minds Eye Stella and Rose, Mabel "Little lady" fine flowers.
The dies I have used are Spellbinder Nestabilities Long Classic Scalloped rectangle large and Tim Holtz Tattered Florals.
Ranger Distress ink Tea die and stickles star dust.
Pearls from the lovely Cathy in a recent RAK. 
Doilies, brads and bead spacers from stash and image coloured with copics.

I loved this sketch, thanks Kiki for such a good one.
I'm also not normally a fan of orange and teal together but I think it works.
Very summery for a Summer lady!
I love this image, did I mention that already?  LOL.
The card is going to my mum for her birthday..using the them "love"...."with love on your birthday!"  x

But enough of my chat..."what's the prize I hear you cry?"
It's pick "n" mix time, your choice of six SN stamps.
And here it comes've got to be in it to win it!
Good luck everyone, have fun with the sketch and happy crafting.  xxx
