Variations on a Theme

I know I'm in danger of getting boring but I've been doing some more experimenting with the tone on tone one colour cards. The technique so says wedding to me that I had to have a go at a wedding card. This first card is in off white with peachy inking. I think it has a very delicate look. I've water coloured OneFourZero stamp and added punched flowers. I actually think the pearls are a little big for the tiny flowers but they were the only ones I had enough of. If anyone knows where to get a good selection of different sized pearls I'd be glad to hear about it.
This second card is just a remake of the Just Because I Adore you card I made last week. It's my favourite of the three. I appreciate your looking and taking the time to comment.
