Congratulatory Wedding Wishes

Hello there!  Is it hot in your part of the country?  It sure is warm here in Austin!  It was 104 yesterday!  Feels like we will have much of the same today.
I had some time to create a wedding card today using Verve's Love Story and the congratulations is from Papertrey Ink's Boards and Beams set.  This card is a try at the Papercrafts Gallery Idol.  I have only ever submitted 3 cards for anything "designer" like and I am trying to get better about this, so...
I used a sheet of K and CO that I thought was so perfect for a wedding card, classic pattern and neutral colours, my kind of comfortable :)
I stamped and coloured the heart image from Verve and then stamped the sentiment in the middle.  I popped this onto a beaded circle die cut that I made using PTI Vintage Linen card stock (I used this for the card base also).  I added a few yellow Prima roses that go so well with the paper and also punched out some MS fronds and leaves in the linen cs and a kraft cs.  The congratulations was stamped and trimmed off from the rest of the sentiment phrase and I sponged the edges in SU crumb cake ink (all of the edges on the card are sponged with this).  The last little detail is the seam binding as my ribbon and I placed a bronze brad with a pearl center through the bow center.  
Hope you have a great day and enjoy the summery weather!
Cheers,
Chriss
