Woodgrain Wedding Card

I've been meaning to make this wedding card for ages and had a couple of ideas for it, but this week I've seen two inspiration pictures that together just fired up my mojo.
The photos I started with are Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger ...

and Inspired By #91...

I watercoloured a background of very light grey, brown and green wide stripes and let the colours run into each other.  While this was still a bit damp I stamped a woodgrain pattern over the top so it kind of blended into the background a bit for a softer look.  I like the way the knots in the wood echo the shape of the comb in the top photo.
The flowers around the edge of the frame are all from one stamp which was a bit too straight for my liking, so I fussy cut around some of the swirls and flowers to split the image into three pieces which I could then reassemble around the curved edge of the frame.  I stamped it in four different colours so I could add a few more flowers to hide my joins!

I'm also entering this into
The Pink Elephant 219 Wedding or Anniversary
The Friday Mashup 130 Let's Cut it Up!

and it would of course fit into 365 Cards day 278 - Fussy Cut and Paper Pieced too. We'd love you to come over and join us, we have a new challenge every day.
