Nice day for a ,,,,,,, Beach Wedding :-)

The theme for this fortnight on the House Mouse Monday Challenge is 'On the Beach' Well ,,, I had to put my thinking cap on for this one as I don't have any beachy HM stamps ,,,,, yet ! :-)
It is becoming quite popular for couples to jet off to the Carribean to get married ,,, a few celebs have done it eh !! :-) So I thought my mice could get married on the beach too, my poor little mice couldn't afford the fares tho ,,, so they have to get married on the beach at Ramla Bay in Gozo :-)

I followed the fab sketch by Teresa on the Mojo Monday Challenge They have a contest this week with up to 7 prizes !!! Oohh how fabulous ,,, hope I win one :-)

I coloured the happy couple with copics and cut them out with nestie circles. I added copics glitter pens and stickles glitter for sparkle ,,I also added some lace stickles to her veil ,,, I do love the effect that gives lace ,,, it really does look real ! :-)
The papers are basic grey, think its from the 2 scoops pad. the blue embossed panel was embossed,, I swiped a white pigment ink pad over the embossing folder and then after embossing the paper I sprinkled it with sparkle EP and heated it ,, it looks lovely eh ! :-) I thought the swirly folder looked a bit like waves ,,,,, :-) I printed the text on the ribbon on my comp,, :-)

I had to use a stamp positioner to stamp the feet in the sand ,,, as I only had that idea AFTER I had coloured the image in ,,, it would have been easier if I had thought of it before I started ! ,,, :-)
The footprints were made with marigold ink. I added some gems to keep in with the sketch ,, placed wonky deliberately ,,, :-) I then plonked the 2 flowers on too ,, they are not in the sketch ,, but I thought they looked good there ,,, what do you think ??

I am also entering this into the following challeges :-
