A Pearlescent Wedding Card

I created this card for Fond Memories' Valentine's Card Party stamping event this weekend. They're featuring Spellbinder's dies and Valentine's greetings. A pretty wedding card seemed appropriate for the event.
I used all pearlescent papers. The embossed frame was cut from pearlescent cream card stock using a Spellbinder's frame die that also has a wider border for embossing. It really shows off the embossed pattern and has such a pretty sheen. The 2 sided background paper is from Reminisce.
I used Ranger Adirondack Espresso ink to stamp the hearts & greeting, then heat embossed with clear powder.
A pretty ribbon with sheen is the finishing touch. The design is simple yet elegant.
