FCCB Challenge #165 Wedding Days

Happy Monday !!
Welcome to my post for this weeks FCCB Challenge
We are celebrating the wedding season today and invite you all to join us by visiting our blogs, making your own project and joining in the challenge for the chance of a blog prize and  much coveted TOP 5 place !!

Our challenge is open from 0800 Monday until 1900 on Sunday evening (US Mountain time)
All you have to do is USE and NAME at least one Cricut Cartridge on your project which can be either a card of gift
I used George and Basic Shapes to cut a white Hessian mat and a cream matt to form the background of my 6"x6" white card
I roughed up the edges and used Aged Mahogany Distress ink on all the edges before I stuck them down with Cosmic Shimmer Glue 
OOPPS !! Nearly forgot to mention the cream card also has white/gold Frantage embossing powder sprinked on it too
I cut the triangle layer at 140cm from the Artiste Cartridge
I cut the heart and wedding sentiment with Artiste, with more Frantage and distress ink
I also heat embossed the wedding word with 3 layers of clear powder
I have used a mis-match of pretties on my card layering Raffia under the heart, lace on top of it and cheese cloth on the top right corner with some netting and a gorgeous ribbon for good measure too
I made the pin and added the heart charm holding it on with gold jewellery wire wrapping it around my poky tool to make the coils
I used punches for the butterflies, flowers and leaves and added pearls to finish
Don't forget to pop over to FCCB and leave the DT some love!!

I would also like to share my card with the following challenges
