CACB #17

It's time for the new challenge at Crafty Ann's and this time our theme is Embossing. This is the very first card I've made for a handfasting ceremony. I've used my hands digi and the bow from one of the frames digis to create my main image.The hearts are a rubber stamp that were stamped using the brilliance twilight pad and the sentiment is one of my favourite stamps and says "love is the shortest distance between two hearts." My colouring medium is promarkers and the bps are Crafty Ann's from the polished stone collections and the heart shaped bp is from the  embossed hearts collection. The two smaller pieces on the bottom of the easel card have been put through the c/bug Nat folder and I've added flourishes from a Marianne's die and pearls to the corners to finish it off.

I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
