Wedding Card in Purple and Silver

I made this card for Sentimental Sunday challenge using the sketch challenge from Kaboodle Doodles and color challenge for Saturday Challenge at Secret Crafters.  This is first time to entered the last two challenges mentioned.
I used silver metallic CS that I embossed ...I first tried cs without embossing and it was boring but the texture brought it to life...  and added cut outs of purple for the corners that I cut using a nesties. Used 3 different sentiments stamps inked with purple and cut 2 with circle nesties and one I cut freehand. I edged these with silver pen and sponged lightly with purple. My image is one I printed with PrintShop software. I left the wedding couple in black and white , colored the rose with purple glitter pen and also sponged the edge with purple ink. Matted this on purple paper. Assembled card following sketch.
