PSC72: Brides or Babies- Wedding

Make sure you enter my 200 Follower Giveaway! for a chance to win a $25 gift card to Michael's!

Hello my crafty friends!
Today I am sharing a card that I made for the Perfect Sentiments Challenge #72 , "Brides or Babies". I decided to go with the Wedding theme and created a card with matching envelope.
I used the Artiste cartridge and cut out the envelope out at 6 1/2" out of some pretty elegant silver paper from Me and My Big Ideas "Specialty paper pad", then I cut out the envelope again at 5 3/4" so that I would have a nice matting to layer on top. This pretty white/silver paper is also from the same paper pad. I neeed to have a sentiment on the front of my project, so I decided to go with "Mr. & Mrs." since it's perfect for the occasion. I cut out the sentiment from page 61 of the Artiste cartridge. To finish off the envelope, I added some glossy accents to my sentiment and used some gorgeous black/white ribbon that I had gotten from WalMart to make a belly band with a bow as the envelope's closure. The belly band has a velcro closure in the back so that it can be easily opened or shut.

I cut out the card from page 62 out of that same silver paper at 4 3/4" and then cut it again using some Bazzill white cardstock at 3 3/4" to have a perfect matting. I inked up the edges of the white cardstock using tea dye distress ink by Tim Holtz. The sentiment,"Wishing you all the love and happiness two people can share" is from an old Stampin Up set and was inked using some archival ink by Ranger. To finish this card, I added some "white opal" Perfect Pearls to frame the corners both at the top and bottom. I then added some more of that pretty ribbon to the bottom and a flower that I had in my stash from Pebbles. The only thing extra I did to the flower was add the center brad which is from Bazzill. Here are a few more photos:
