Paperplay - "Wedding"

This week's challenge on Paperplay is "Wedding" and it is very kindly sponsored by Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  The prize is a stamp pack of the Winner's choice.
As the wedding season is well and truly upon us I have made quite a few wedding cards in recent weeks.  This is one that I made at the weekend on the request of my SIL.  She asked me to make a Wedding "shaker" card.  So I used a slightly larger card blank, white pearlescent paper (as the overlay) and some scalloped pp's inspired by Lucy here.  While these are fun they are a little fiddly to make and somewhat time consuming, but I do like the result.  Let's hope the bride and groom do too!
Supplies: Large Card Blanks by Anita's, Pearlescent cardstock, Forever Friends stamp,
Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Lge, textured cardstock black and white by Papermania,
Embossing folder - dots & circles, pop dots and misc sequins

The top layer is raised on foam dots with a square of foam tape around the edges of the scallop to act as an enclosure for the sequins which I used in the shaker.

Entering it into the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge - monochromatic card.

Thanks so much for peeking and I hope you get a chance to play along with Paperplay this week.
