Love and Life

My husband and I have a wedding to go to tomorrow.  This is the card I created:
 I won these gorgeous handmade flowers from Petal Lu a month or so ago and knew they would be perfect for a wedding card (no going through the mail for these beauties!!).  Then I saw the Viva La Verve sketch for the month of May and knew it was the one I was going to use.  The stitched circle was in my bits and pieces stash as well as the bit of lace behind the dotted ribbon.  I created the "paper" with PTI's "Guide Lines 2".  I love this set for creating patterned "paper".  To soften the black ink, I added a panel of vellum directly over the top of the stamped layer; it adds such a soft touch.  The torn mulberry paper helps with that, too.  The little panel on the right was embossed with a damask embossing folder.  Everything was finished off with some pearls and a small light gray heart stamped on the sentiment panel.
Stamps: Verve "Text Objects" sentiment and heart; PTI "Guide Lines 2"
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle and "Blueprints 12" stitched circle
Cuttlebug Damask embossing folder
