Kraftin Kimmie's Funky Fibres

The elder of my two nieces got married in October.  She and her husband are both very active in the Scouting world and are very outdoorsy.   They had a lovely church ceremony and then held their reception in a circus big top erected by the groom over several days beforehand.  He is a specialist sound and lighting engineer and produced an absolutely amazing laser light and music show after the dinner speeches. It was a fabulous day and evening.  Here are the ushers, best men (there were two of them) and the bride and groom in a somewhat unconventional pose!  They didn't arrive in these land rovers by the way - there were proper wedding cars!

The male supporters were wearing either magenta or teal cravats and the bridesmaid's dresses were identical to each other but one was teal and one magenta.
This is the wedding card I made for the happy couple. It was actually best matey, Julie's, idea to use these fab Kraftin Kimmie characters and they were just perfect for the occasion.  (post script: the images are Chester and Snow White)

I stamped my Impression Obsession large swirl background stamp with Versamark and embossed it with Wow embossing powder in magenta.  I then restamped it and embossed a heartshaped piece of card stock with Wow teal empossing powder.  My sentiment, also embossed, is part of
a larger stamp by Papermania.  The "Love" tag is one I had in my stash and the flowers are Prima. The bride and the groom have been coloured in a Copic and Promarker combo and cut out.  This week Kraftin Kimmie, who have a blog hop, want us to use "funky fabric" on our cards. I made a veil with some tulle for for the bride which is draped behind her and over her face. Here is a close up:
