{SS} #186: Wedding Card

Good morning!!
Thanks for stopping by today.
It's time for this weeks brand new challenge theme at SweetStamps.
This weeks theme is:

I am using a few brand new items that were recently released.
First, I know you recognize the stencil which was released just this month.  This set is called Cross My Flowers.  I used white embossing paste for the texture, but added Antique Linen re-inkers to tone down the white and to give it a more neutral feel.
I am using Piccolo Classy Circle Frame
I thought of embossing it with some sort of color; however, I just could not decide.  So instead I left it bare and beautiful.  The flower  image inside the frame is from Live Laugh Love Roses Stamp set
I have chosen to watercolor the image using my distress ink markers. After it was all dried and stamped the Mr and Mrs sentiment.
