A Wedding Card

I am heading to a wedding tomorrow and wanted to make a simple card to go along with the gift that I purchased. I love how the card turned out but well taking the picture was quite the mission! I got some metallic card stock which I have discovered does not like to be photographed. Too much light and I had a terrible glare, flash not going to happen, not enough light equals blurry, side view looks white, etc. In the end I did what I could because like I said I really love it and wanted to share my creation! The pictures do nothing for it but everyone here is crafty so use your wonderful imaginations! In the last picture you can see where I got my inspiration for the colours. Thanks for looking!

Bulk teal and black cardstock
Metallic cardstock from the dollarstore (I know great find eh)!
A piece of white ribbon (I recycled from a past gift, I was feeling thirty today)!
Teal bling (Another dollarstore find)!
Stretch your imagination pg 73 just the silhouette cut at 3.5 in.
Cuttlebug folder - Swiss Dots

Very nice card and gift. I have used tin foil on cards for this effect, but that paper is great.

I really like your wedding card, especially that metallic paper! Of course we can be friends LOL! I hardly ever find people my age too.
