Husband & Wife Quilled Blue Flowers Wedding Card

*This post was set up in advance as I am away this week. Comments are always appreciated, but please excuse my delay in responding!!!*

There are many weddings coming up this summer, so I thought I'd take this week's Anything Goes challenge at Tuesday Alchemy to get myself going with wedding cards. Two prizes up for grabs this week: Live A Beadiful Life is offering a $10 gift certificate to one lucky winner and The Greeting Farm is sending over a 4x6 Clear Or Rubber Stamp Set to a second winner! Very exciting prizes!!!
I was inspired by a wedding cake. Can you see where I was going with that? 

I found this Bride and Groom clipart from Computer Clip Art:
I printed it on my inkjet printer after filling the black parts with the color I wanted in Photoshop. 

I used both quilled flowers and white Prima flowers. Prima flower centers are quilled.

Sentiment was wet embossed with detailed silver embossing powder and there are various patterns that I dusted with blue Perfect Pearls, so it'll have a shimmer at certain angles.
