Wedding Wishes & Love

Hi, I am excited to share this card with you but more so
for the reason behind it.

My son lives in Colorado and I live in Arizona so I don't
get to see him very often.  He did surprise us and show up
for Thanksgiving along with his fiance, we just love her and she
makes my son very happy.  I had to make them a special card for
their wedding.
 I created following the sketch this week over
at Die Cutting Divas.  I flipped the center piece but otherwise
followed the sketch.

It is a half size card or an 8 1/2 by 11 cardstock folded in half so
it is a larger card. I cut the loopy center oval using a Gina Marie die, then layered a plain oval cut from pearl linen paper. 
I struggled so long to figure out what I wanted to put in the center, then 
I saw this heart cut with the swirls using the Wall Decor Cricut cartridge and my Explore.  Then I cut the word love also with my Explore, both the swirls and the love are cut from gold mirror paper.  So hard to take a good picture of this
kind of paper, but this card is beautiful in person.  The top paper is a very pretty pearl paper that is embossed, I got it from the single sheets at Michaels.
The sentiment is also a die cut and is stamped using a Stampin Up stamp and heat embossed in gold.  The bottom strip of paper is also from Michaels single sheets and is very sparkly and glittery. 
So with all this sparkle & shine and love, this card also fits into
this month's Power & Sparkle Challenge over at the Power Poppy blog.

I just have to finish up the inside of this card and then it will be already to hand deliver to them at their wedding Colorado.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, have a great week.
