S2G DT Call with pearls

This is soooo last minute but I just have to do this.  As some of you know I am retiring from my full time job next month, so I am looking for some things to fill my time.  Since I love making crafting I was thinking of looking for something there.  So when I saw the notice that Shirleys 2 Girls were looking for DT members I wanted to apply.  It's just a really crazy time for me and I barely found time to sit down to make this card.  It was made using a digital image from S2G.  That's a minor miracle for me.  Not being set up to print kept me from applying in the past but this weekend hubbie and I sat down and worked on the printer problem.  Later Kristine from S2G helped me with my download problem and "Voila" here's the result.
About the pearls, let's just say that I made a crazed purchase and you'll probably being seeing lots of pearls on my cards.  Good thing for me I like pearls.
Well, I hope that Shirley's Girls will forgive the lateness of my post.  The S2G challenge this week is to make a card with a bride and the twist is to use something old.  The bouquet is so old I didn't even remember that I had it and what a great surprise it is, I think it's the perfect finishing touch for this card.
So here's the deets:
stamp - Shirley's 2 Girls - digi "Bride"
ink - hah! no ink, it's digi
paper -MFT Sno Cone card stock; Autumn Leave Carlyle dp
miscellaneous - Darlene Finishing Accents bouquet; copics, Creative Memories cutting system; Queen & Co pearls; ribbon; Stampin' Up border punch
Here's the challenges:
Paper Sundaes Week #23 - Pretty as a Princess, girly girl stuff (flowers, ribbons, eyelet, pearls - oh so girly) and the sketch is the Paper Sundaes Week #22 challenge
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C42 - paper flowers
Shirley's 2 Girls - bride and the twist something old
