Hello and a very Happy Tuesday

Here is my card I made for this week's challenge

I went with the wedding theme this week using this beautiful stamp by Jacqueline Hill called Wedding Swans , I embossed the stamp using Distress Embossing Ink, then added Queen's Gold embossing powder.
before I stamped the image onto my paper I did prepare the surface by rubbing my embossing pal anti-static pouch over the area I was going to emboss.
I thought the gold and white was very elegant together and kept this as my color scheme. The gold doily was cut using Cheery Lynn Designs  French Pastry Doily die and the ferns are a new die from Cherry Lynn Designs  Pair of Ferns

Here is the inside using Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Doily die and Best Wishes sentiment stamp
