Fall Wedding

Happy Monday to everyone!
Wow...sorry it's been so quiet around here.  Haven't been having the greatest of weeks lately. 
I'm finally moved back into my craft room and reorganized, which feels really good, but it's taking longer to get the inspiration flowing than I thought it would...

But I'm back again today to share with you our new challenge at Digi Makeover!  It's a photo inspiration challenge.  I never seem to do good with photo inspiration challenges...you would think that a photo would offer the most amount of inspiration and cause the ideas to fly...but it just doesn't seem to work that way with me.  But it's a gorgeous photo and I knew I could draw something from it, so I just sat and stared at it for awhile until something formed in my head :)
I love everything about weddings!  I would have a wedding every year if I could!  They are just so elegant, gorgeous, happy events and I just love that.
So I decided to stick with that theme instead of just pulling the colors from the photo.
When I first finished my card, I wasn't totally happy with it.  It's a bit...boring...and I didn't like the hard line of the two papers in the middle.  But now that I have slept on it and am seeing it with fresh eyes...I kind of like it :)  I love the soft background colors with the pop of green in the middle.  And the pearls give it that elegant edge.

I used a little cake image from the So Sweet set from Paper Makeup, and the congrats sentiment flag is from the Little Moments set.  I used my Cameo to cut out the scallop circle and the swirl and then finished it all off with some sparkly ribbon and a bow.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
