Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #75

Can I just begin by saying how much I love Taylor's sketch this week?! I will definitely be using this one over and over again in the future! It's so simple, and yet packs a big punch.

I stuck with a very simple color scheme since I wanted to make this more of a wedding card. No, I don't have any weddings coming up, but I was going through my collection of cards and realized I had no more wedding cards! Ah! Definitely time to whip a few for the reserves.

I just got the Cosmo Cricket Everafter paper pack and am loving it! I've seen quite a few cards out there made with this dp and I've loved everything I've seen. It was definitely time to grab some of the paper for myself. :)

I combined two stamp sets to create this card. The first is Hearts of Fire from Verve and the sentiment is from SU's Short & Sweet. Love that little set. After stamping and popping up the hearts, I covered all three of them in glossy accents and sprinkled some glitter over the middle orange heart for some sparkle. A quick bow/twine/button combo added a fun little accent (and I'm addicted to the technique). Some pearls from Michael's line the sentiment.

I really love how this card turned out! Such a clean, elegant feel to it...
