Bridal shower card

Yet another card where I'm not sure I like how it turned out.  Maybe I'm in a creative funk??  Anyway, a friend of mine requested a shower card for a "very Irish" couple, so this is what I did.  I cut the cake from Wild Card at 4"Hx3"W, the inside flourish is from Heritage, and the "For the Bride" is also from Wild card.  I embossed the cake with CB Divine Swirls, and used Recollections silver pearls from Michael's on each swirl tip, as well as the areas between cake layers.  The silver glitter mat is a piece from one of Anna Griffin's holiday packs, and the flowers are all from a K&Co pack I found at Joann's

It doesn't show up here, but the white card base is actually embossed with "wedding" and wedding related phrases, and it was from a pack by DCWV.  If you happen to find this on clearance, like I did, GET IT!!  The Irish wedding blessing on the inside I actually found online by just doing a Google search, and then I inked a little bit around the edge.  I'm not sure what it is I don't like, but she needs it by tomorrow, so this is it.  I think I would have felt more confident if I knew the bride's wedding color scheme and could have tailored it around that, as well as feeling like the flowers are too big.  Oh well, thanks for visiting!


I appreciate your comments, so THANK YOU!!
