Cardz TV Challenge # 9-"Say I DO"

I'm so excited!! It is time for a new challenge at Cardz TV. Our theme this time is "Say I DO". We would love for you to join us and make a card, favor or craft project for an engagement, wedding shower or wedding. This came at a perfect time as I just found out a sweet man that I use to work with will be getting married in July. This is the card I made for them. I started out with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of white cardstock. Folded in half makes a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 A2 size card. I than added a 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 piece of designer paper from graphic 45-Romantique. Using the Elegant Edges Cartridge, I cut the oval and it's shadow on page 29 at 3 inches. I than cut the 'W' monogram on page 35 from the Tie The Knot Cartridge at 2 inches. I popped up the monogram and then popped up the Elegant Edges piece. I punched some butterflies using my Martha Stewart punch. I used the same paper that I used for the monogram for the bottom piece and the dp for the top piece. I glued the bottom down and just the middle of the top so I could fold the wings up after putting some faux half pearls down the middle. I finished off the front of my card by putting some Prima Say it in Pearls on it. I put my sentiment on the inside. I used Greater Love stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. These Bible Verses are fantastic!! I thought, 'Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:7, 8 were just perfect for a wedding card. I hope my friend thinks so, too. Hop over and check out the fabulous creations my DT Sisters have created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!!  Now, we really would love to see your "Say I DO" creation. Make sure it is a new project, no back links please. And who knows, you just might be the one to win the set of Cardz TV Stamps of your choice that Mary is giving away. Now this challenge goes from May 25th until midnight, EST on May 27th. So looking forward to seeing what you create!!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!!!! :)

Your card is beautiful Sharon! I really like the pearls on the front but I think my favorite part of the card is the inside & the scripture you used.
