Altenew Wedding Theme Challenge

As soon as I saw this challenge I knew what kind of a card I wanted to make.  I wanted to combine the Majestic Bloom with some silver foiling.  I thought it would make an elegant wedding card.

There are two problems with foiling.  One is that cards with foiling look much better in real life than in a photo.  It seems the camera just does not capture the shimmer at all or it comes out as a giant ball of glare.  I concede that the fault my lay with the photographer :-).  The second problem is that foiling tends to capture all the limelight, and it is hard to jazz up anything else on the card, without it being too much.  In this case I gave the flower a coating of Sparkle Spritz.   Anyway you will have to take my word for it, that this card does look quite nice in real life.
