Embossed Regal Wedding Card

I am back into my comfort zone today after my card yesterday.  I am finding I love the simplicity of Whisper White with one other colour and have to stretch myself to use more than one colour on a card.  But I persevere sometimes and they do work out!
Here is today's card for you .....
 and a bit closer view of the sentiment, bow and some of the pearls .......
I ran the whisper white 5 1/4 x 4" piece through my Big Shot with the Elegant Lines embossing folder.  But I only went part way through so it just embossed the top of the cardstock.  Then I pulled out my Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder and embossed the bottom of the cardstock so there is two different embossings on the piece.  I love this look!  Then I put a bow made with Whisper White Satin ribbon over the part where the two embossings meet so you don't see it.  I punched two Decorative Label pieces out of Regal Rose and offset them behind the whisper white Four Frames piece I also punched out with the Decorative Label punch.  Basic Pearls added throughout the card just finish it off.  You could make this wedding card out of any colour to match the colours of the wedding, and it would look just as awesome.
Stamps:  Four Frames, Always Elegant
Ink:  Regal Rose, Basic Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Regal Rose
Other:  Decorative Label punch, Elegant Lines and Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folders, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Basic Pearls
If I had been at home I probably would have used my pink sharpie marker to colour the pearls a nice light pink to go with the colour scheme.   Maybe next time!
Happy Stampin' ......................

Hi Glenda,
Love your card. I totally agree with you. I can use more than one color on my cards, but I really like my white spaces.
