Uk crafters thread wedding challenge card!

Hello everyone!!!!
Well, what a gorgeous day I have had today. We went out early to Rufford Park ( which is just a big, lovely old house and ruins and nature reserve with lots of woodland to play in and a little play village with tunnels and bits for little mo to explore) It was really quiet when we got there so we wombled around the lake and woods first,dh took lots of piccies with his camera and me and mo just enjoyed everything, Zak ( my furbaby) had a whale of a time, soooo many sniffs to be had there!!! It turned out to be beautiful and sunny and I just had a lovely time, I didn't even mind missing Extreme makeover day with Ty !! so itmust of been good!! It was just so nice to have some real time with Little mo with no distractions, real quality time, perfect. It is days like today that help me to remember how blessed I am to have such an amazing husband and children.
So here is my card for the Ukcrafters thread on the cricut mb, nicki set us a challenge to make a wedding card. I have ha the solutions wedding cart since it came out but to be honest I hadn't really used itso this was the perfect opportunity to get it out!!! I cut the rings, doves and glasses at 1" in both shadow and regular cut, inked te edges ith a brown whispers pen(great for fiddly little places wher no kind of inkpad or cats eye will venture!!! and popped a bit of stickles on them to give them some wedding bling!!!!
The background paper is totally gorgeous, it is from 'Huge Funky Love' from ( anice is having a sale until 10pm tonight so go quickly!! 15% off!!)
I popped some brown ribbon with a bit of pink rik-rak ribbon on top of it and then attached my cuts to it with foam squares. There is a dark brown mat underneath the background paper that I swiss dot embossed with my cuttlebug and chalked the top with cream but then I covered it all up with the cool funkyhand paper!!!!
The sentiment I did on my computer for both the outside and inside of the card, printed in brown to co-ordinate with the papers.I stickled the edges of the sentiment mats to make them look pretty and then popped some foam sqaures on them too. I inked the edges of the card in a pinky colour and hey presto!! its done!!!
I am going to make a quick card for one of our students at work whose birthday is tommorow, I am feeling the need for my forbes and friends woodware stamps again!! and I have a card to do for my dh's mum for her friends birthday so busy,busy,busy!!!!!
Thankyou for popping in.
