I got the basic idea for this card from Sharon Click (one of my Convention buddies!), who said she had seen it somewhere else. Sorry I can't give better credit! I did add a few of my own touches. For the bride heart, I embossed the card stock with a heart/swirl embossing folder (non SU). Then I painted Crystal Effects along the raised portions and sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I also added white brads for buttons.
I gave this card to my cousin and his bride for their wedding. After the fact, I realized that I should have switched the red for a dark purple to match their wedding colors. Oh, well. Thanks for looking!

This is a great card,
I just finished making it but had to change a bunch of things.
A question first, did you use SU's single heart punch (large) in the big catty? It looks like it would be perfect.
I do not have that so I had to use a solid heart stamp and I embossed it in black and then in White irredescent emb powder. It turned out, but way to putzy not having that heart punch. I also embossed with the Baroque Motiffs stamp set SU.It looks good but I like your black swirls better. I find black emb powder is not very nice.

Diana - I did use the large heart punch from SU (just realized I forgot to include that on the supply list above!). I didn't even think about embossing the swirls; I just used black StazOn ink. I bet all the embossing on the hearts and swirls on your card looked great! Thanks for your comments!

This is a really pretty take on this card! I love the background you used, and the way you did the bow tie. I love the pearls, and I love all the swirls! I am going to CASE this one but with Paisleys, for my stepson's wedding. So pretty, thanks for sharing! Blessings, Lela
