Wedding Card

Here is a card I made today for a wedding reception we are going to in a couple of weeks, the couple actually got married this weekend in Italy. 




The heart and sentiment is by papermania from their confetti collection.  I 'inked' it with flitter glue and stamped onto black card, then I added chariots of fire gliding flakes by IndioBlu.  I cut a strip of black and gold paper for the side panel and a black card matt for the card blank, everything was edged with the flitter glue and the gliding flakes.
I layered it all up and gave the heart and sentiment a little extra definition by adding foam pads.  At the very end I decided to add in two little golden pearls to the top right corner.
The gliding flakes I've used are a lovely gold shade, I realise that the photos kind of have a bleached look to them due to the sun and the flake looks slightly silver??  I thought taking my photos outside would improve them as I think that is my biggest weakness when blogging :(

Anyway, I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

The Stamp Man Challenge Blog - Angela has set the theme this time: Precious Medal/Metals - Olympics - Gold/Silver/Bronze.  All the challenge details can be found HERE
