TOMIC challenge #57

hi friends, we have a new challenge on TOMIC, this time around its "no character stamps + embossing and the sketch

i gotta say i quite enjoyed this challenge, as a challenge for me it was, i hardly ever make these kinda cards, but i knew i would need a wedding card soon, so thats what i made.
 no excuses here, but i gotta say that the gold coloring looks much better irl.
 i heat embossed the middle panel with gold embossing powder, something else that i havent done in ages, in fact i almost got rid of all the embossing powder and heat gun a little while ago
 the background i used a couple of the old cuttlebug embossing folders for
stamp:  wedding rings from Magnolia, sentiment from whimsy
embossing folders: cuttlebug
Embellishments and additional drek, all from my stash
ins/ coloring: memento and copics, top boss for the hear embossing
