Wedding Card

It really stinks being at the mercy of my local library in order to have high speed internet. Count your blessings those of you who do not live to far from your phone companys hubs or to far out of town for cable. Any way, I haven't been doing a lot because I don't want to waste gas going to the library. However, my niece is getting married this afternoon and so I created this card for her. Her colors are brown, tan and yellow-hence the color combo.


The flowers and leaves were cut out using Cricut's Art Philosophy cartridge. The large flowers were at 3" and the small ones at 2". The leaves were cut at 1" (I can't remember for sure)
The oval was cut at 3". I layered vellum over the decorative paper and stamped on it. The center of the flowers were done using a pearl pen as were the pearl accents on the corners of the rectangle. The scalloped piece was cut using a Tim Holtz alterations die. The inside piece is a card holder (or in my case, a check holder). I played around with it until I was satisfied. The scalloped edge was done using a punch. I then glued it down, folding it at the corners. I didn't like it, so I added white candy which I covered with ultra fine glitter. The saying was stamped using a stamp from Stampin' Up. I hope you like my card. I am entering it in the following challenges:
