To Have & To Hold Wedding Card

I'm just trying to keep up on the cards I need. It's obvious here that I needed another wedding card. I just LOVE this Stampin' Up! "To Have & to Hold" set. It's such a sweet image.

I was going for the white on white look and after I got all the white pieces on it was SO blah that I decided to add some silver to the card. I got out my brushed silver card stock and cut one for the layer and one for the scallop. It was just what the card needed. Plus the brushed silver has a bit of a sparkle to it and gives the card an even richer look.

I cut a piece of 7/8" white grosgrain ribbon, tied it in a bow and attached it with a pop-up glue dot. I wanted something that was really going to stick and boy do those things ever stick!!!

I have found one problem using the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. The paper is raised on one side (I use that side on the top) and when I add a layer to the top of those little bumps it doesn't like to stick. Sometimes I have to use glue to get it to stay. I will know tomorrow if I need to add glue to the back of the frame and oval. But for now it's sticking and I like the card!!! Though.... there's always that "though" in there, isn't there?? LOL I was thinking that maybe the bouquet could use a touch of color. I may just do that. Again I will know better tomorrow!!! I need to step away from this and think about it later.

Again, this was a very quick card to make. I'll have to keep this in mind when I need one in a hurry. Though (here we go again with that "though"! LOL) I really am trying to be caught up on the cards I need to make for upcoming occasions. And I would REALLY like to be a bit ahead of the game. This wedding card puts me ahead of the game in that department!!! Shocker, I know!!! LOL

Thanks SO much for visiting today!
