"Going to the Chapel and We're Gonna Get Married" Card

I needed a card for an upcoming wedding.  They are a younger couple so I wanted something fun!  I love when I make a card that puts a smile on my face, especially this week!  While making this card, I could not stop singing "Going to the chapel and we're gonna get married" (Click HERE if you would like to get the song stuck in your head too)! 
I used Inspired Hearts Cartridge for the background and Simply Charmed for the bride and groom.  I do not have a cart with bells so I made my own with a scrap of silver shimmer paper.

The card front is mostly black and white with a splash of pink (their wedding color).  The blue and green that you can see are on the inside of the card.  I used my Gypsy to stretch the background piece from Inspired Heart and then welded it to the front piece.

The bride and groom both have a few layers pieced with dimensionals and I gave them each a Peachy face!

The bride's dress is embossed and I added little rhinestones.  I also gave her a set of earrings and used stickles to make her bouquet sparkle.

Here you can see a little of the dimension and you can see how the happy couple are free standing on the front of the card.
