Happy Hearts

Unlike my "mend soon" card, I really like this card.  It's probably because of the colors.  The heart idea for the bride and groom is not my idea.  I saw it on Splitcoast Stampers.  Several people, including Figaro and Momhom, had made similar cards, and I absolutely loved the idea!  This card is for a young couple getting ready to get married.  (I bet you couldn't have figured that out.  LOL.)

The card was made using sketch 72 at card patterns.  When I saw the sketch, I immediately knew I wanted to give it a shot.  A wedding card was perfect for it!  I punched the squares, rounded the corners, and layered them on scalloped squares that I also punched.  The label that the hearts are on was cut from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.  The hearts are Nestabilities.   I embossed the bride's dress with my Cuttlebug.  Believe it or not, I cut the little bow tie using my Cricut.  It was part of the groom's tux on the Sweethearts cartridge (I think I cut it at 6 1/4").   I added a few pearls to the bride's dress and the groom's tuxedo.  The flowers were in my stash.  I added a little Stickles to them.  The flourish is a Thickers sticker that I cut apart.

Here is the sketch:



And here is my interpretation of the sketch:
