This weekend, my baby is getting married. 

Her wedding colors are gray and navy. 
So, obviously I had to create her card in that color combo.

For the "gray" portion of the card, I used a softly textured metallic paper 
that goes by the cool name "Gun Metal". 
Which, by the way, is appropriate for my Sarah, 
who is an Army veteran having served in Afghanistan. 

To add to the already soft texture of the paper, I also embossed the background piece inside an embossing folder of flower to complement the flowered look of the diecut heart.

I die cut the larger flowers with the die that accompanies the heart die. 
Alas! and Alack! I have unfortunately lost the tiny flower that is also in the set. 
So, in order to make the smaller navy flowers to adhere to the heart, 
I utilized an old retired Stampin' Up! punch. 
Do you remember the punch with the row of three identical flowers? Yes! That's the one I used.

I added a handful of Basic Rhinestones to the centers of some of the flowers:

The rhinestones on the card stand for the moments of bling and fun 
that I hope will enter their life together as husband and wife.

Happy Wedding,
Balti and Sarah!
