Golden Blooms for the Bride and Groom

My husband asked me to make a wedding card for a friend's son and his bride to be so off I skipped to my craft room!  Kent likes clean and simple designs - so this is the card I came up with.
I chose to use the elegant colors of vintage cream and gold.  I off set the stamped panel on the gold panel just for a little visual interest.
I used stamps from Waltzingmouse for my wedding card - the flowers are from Big Bloom Poinsettia and the beautifully scrolled sentiment is from Big Day Additions.  The flowers are gold embossed with a gold half pearl in the center of the largest bloom.  You can see the embossed gold a little better at this angle.
My card design was inspired by these challenges
Virginia's View - All Things Metallic

Stamps:  Big Bloom Poinsettia, Big Day Additions - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  Vintage Cream - PTI, Brushed Gold - SU
Ink:  Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Gold embossing powder, gold half pearl - Michaels.
