The Power of Love

I wrote the title and immediately started humming the Huey Lewis and the News song. I wonder if that was played at my Wedding Card wedding?!  Well, this card was created for a wedding that has yet to be.  I’ll probably keep it in my stash of cards for that next special day in someone’s lives.  Of course, this would be perfect for an anniversary card too! I have more of those in my life now than weddings.

It didn’t take me much time to make because I used a sketch layout and some color combinations already Heart Close Upsuggested by both Splitcoaststampers and Stampin’ Addicts.  I added all the elements and I was done.  That beautiful seam binding rosette heart I created last month when I was playing around trying to figure out how to make those gorgeous ribbon roses that I’ve been seeing around.  So, yes, I created the heart element with all 19 of those individual ribbon roses out of Side View Kraft Seam Binding (SU retired).  When you have a special event it's nice to have a special card, right? And that heart actually is the icing on this card.
