Happily every after @ CD Sunday

I needed to make a wedding card for a colleague who is getting married soon. I've been putting it off as I don't really like doing wedding cards, I think its the pressure to make it really special. Anyway, the challenge on CD Sunday "happily every after" gave me the start I needed and I also have always liked the hearts used in this way, so I have done my own take on it.
I used vinyl and cut the hearts on my silhouette, I then embossed the white vinyl in a spellbinders folder. The background paper and the larger pink hearts are papers from "say it with words", I'm using this cd so much at the moment. I created the sentiments using the Jane Austen font on the PC.
I'm also entering this card into the Anything Goes challenge at Divas by Design.

I'm not one for wedding and associated cards either Lynn, find them very hard. But have to say this one is lovely.

I think this is a lovely idea making the hearts look like the clothes the bride and groom are wearing such a clever idea.

What a lovely idea to make the hearts look like the couples clothes. I think we all struggle making Wedding Cards but this is beautiful and I am pleased we gave you to 'kick' you needed to design it. Thanks for joining us at CD Sunday.
