Triple Challenges...

I'm participating in three challenges with this card.
The Play Date Cafe Challenge #40 ~ color splash
Card Patterns Sketch 75
Just Us Girls #44 ~ wild card wedding

 *** Hi, it's Tuesday evening and I'm adding another challenge to the list!  True :) left a comment on this post, and told me about a challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It's for a black and white card with a touch of color allowed.  RRR Challenge #5  Thank you True!!!  Now back to my original post. ***

When I was browsing the challenges yesterday, these three seemed to fit together so I combined them into one card.  I'm pleased with the card, and I hope you like it, too!
This is my first time participating in a Play Date Cafe challenge.  When I saw that the challenge was black and white with a splash of green, I had to participate (since it's one of my favorite colors!)
Anyway...on to the card!
I've included a couple of closeup pics to show a little more detail.  I added some stickles to her bouquet and I used smooch on his bow tie, his shoes and the bodice of her dress.  This was my first try at using smooch...I'll need a little more practice.  I love trying new products, though!
