Penguin Wedding

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Monochrome
And here is my card for your inspiration:
 My husband's cousin is getting married at the beginning of January, so I decided to actually get ahead and make a card for her.  I was going to do a completely black and white card, but just couldn't used black flowers in the image and using all white would have been rather boring.  So, I decided to go with pink (and a little black because penguins are black and it's a neutral like white).  I printed out two images and a third one of the veil on vellum.  I colored the main image, then colored the top hat, bouquet, and flower headpiece on the second image.  I cut out the pieces from the second image and the veil from the vellum and adhered them onto the main image for a little bit of dimension and fun.  Since I had pearls sewn onto my veil, I added some liquid pearls to the little Mrs.' veil.  You can't see it in the photo, but I added clear Wink of Stella to the champagne glass.   My ribbon was recycled from who knows what, but it worked perfectly
I hope you get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you come up with.  Monochromatic can be hard, but it can be done!  Thanks for stopping by!
