A "Precious" Wedding Card

Hey there!
Hope everyone is enjoying the sun! (If you are getting some) We have! I finally got the lawn mowed yesterday after work. After a week of rain it grew a foot, or at least the dandylions did anyways ={
So, I have finished up a couple projects, but only one I'll post tonight.
This card I have made for an upcoming wedding. I just love Precious Moments! And this little couple is sooo cute.

First off, I started with the weekly sketch from over at OCC Sketch Challenge Blog. I love starting with a sketch now! Gets the juices flowing faster I guess.
For this one I dug through my old scraps stash for the light mocha CS, the pink paper, and the yellow paper. The striped paper is the 1st paper I bought when I became a CTMH consultant. The "Sweet Pea" PP, now retired. The Always and Forever ribbon and the Precious Moments were purchased to make my wedding album almost 4 years ago.
For the bow I went totally out of my comfort zone and got a little crazy with an ordinary ribbon bow, some spray glue and Glitter Ritz. The lavender eyelets were from my stash and the thread was from CTMH Sassy Strands, sadly now Retired (I love these, but believe me, I stocked up!) I used CTMH pearls on the bottom.The scalloped circle, covered by the sassy strands, I cut with my cricut using the Accent Essentials carty.
The challenges I have entered my card in are:
Thanks again for stopping by! I hope to have a couple to post tomorrow! I'm heading to bed early-actually I started "The short 2nd life of Bree" something or other from the "Twilight" series and I want to finish it now!
    Happy Scrappin! Scrappy Mel
