Indian wedding inspired card

I have tried to make a wedding congratulations card based on the Indian weddings.
In India,  weddings are a full of color,  flowers and lots of shimmer. Summer is the season for weddings,  and I always miss out on the weddings as my kids school summer vacation is July and August,  and not many weddings take place during that time.
Red is the color for most brides, of course there are different colors too. But I went with a red and beige card stock, and some matching flowers.
I drew the bride's face and used my gel pen to add shimmer to the veil. The sentiment panel is cut from one side in the face shape.

Added a tear drop shaped rhinestone to mimic the hair jewellery, and drew the nose ring using a golden gel pen.

Linking this card with:

My card is pretty much close to the sketch, instead of the doily, I added the bride's veil, and a ribbon behind the panel.

An Indian wedding themed card, bit different from all the entries!

Added plenty of flowers as per the inspiration picture, and chose the beige color too!

Coming in to edit this post, which I thought I added Time Out but realized I didn't.
For me summer is all about marriages, in India it is the most busiest times for weddings, that sometimes there are more than a couple of wedding in a given day. And we love colors and flowers so much.

Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate your feedback, if you are not in a hurry :) Have a great day!
