Wedding Blues and Lilacs

A friend asked me to make up a wedding card in blue and lilac.  I struggled at first until I remembered this beautiful paper from Kaisercraft Utopia.  

I attached some paper to foam board and cut two primitive hearts from an Ellison Thick Cuts die.  I then partially cut one of the hearts from the other so they would nestle up close together and gave them a good coat of glossy accents to make sure they stay that way.

The sentiment is from WMS Big Day Additions.  I've mounted it on a Spellbinders Replendent Rectangle.  I tried some WMS Funky Flowers in the top left corner, but I just couldn't get them to sit right given the space available.  I ended up using these die cut loopy flowers.  They were cut with a Cuttlebug die but I can't remember what they're called since they were one of the first dies I ever owned and the packaging is long gone.  I gave them a liberal dose of Glossy Accents as well.

The envelope is stamped with a WMS Funky Flower.  I also stamped another and cut it out with the matching die to make an elegant envelope seal.  WMS Cutting Edge Dies cut so well that the double sided tape I attached to the back of the image didn't phase it.  If you're sending something through the post any embellishments have to be stuck down well or you risk losing them, or worse having your card mangled.

I'm entering this in the WMS Fanatics Challenge 31 - Flowers.
