Wedding Card

The PaperPlayers Challenge 238 called for a die-cut and knowing that I would be using die-cuts or punches for my next card I decided to use this challenge to make a wedding card for my niece's daughter who is getting married on April 18th and her flowers are going to be White and Blush Pink Hydrangeas.

For the background I used a satin finished paper and embossed it with an Anna Gifffin folder and punched the bottom edge of the card with Martha Stuarts' scalloped punch.  Also cut a piece of cardstock from Fundamental Paper - Whimsical "Pixie" and punched the same edge with the scalloped punch.  For the focal part of the card I used a Cricut Cartridge "Love Struck 2010" Heart with some flurishes, raised with Thin 3D Foam, then covered it with small petal flowers. 

The small petal flowers were from the CTMH Stamp Set B1473 "Flowers for Mom Holiday"...first stamped flowers with Pixie Color on white cardstock, then versamark spread on the flowers, heat embossed with clear embossing powder, and then cut each flower using a Stampin'Up punch. Flowers were layered in the heart and small pink bling was added to the center of several flowers.  Placed a bow in the corner with some pearls added to the ribbon, and then added three of the hydrangea flowrs to the bottom corner with pink bling.

Take a hop over to The Paper Players to see the beautiful cards from both the Design Team and competitors...and join this challenge too.  

Here is a closeup of the hydrengea flowers mounted on the Heart.
