A Wedding Card? A Few New Friends Too!

Hi all, here is today's little offering!
A wedding card with a bit of a difference!
June is such a popular month for Weddings I believe as it's the start of summer! lol

The wedding was a bit unconventional I believe, so I made the card in the same vein!
The image I have used is Bethy's Wedding from Mo Manning, I do love her work! 
I coloured it up using Promarkers.then cut it out with a square nestie on the Bigshot! 
I also cut two similar shapes from blue cardstock .

The card base was an A5 rectangle pearlescent card made from an A4 sheet. 
I very rarely buy card blanks now as I find it's much cheaper to make your own if you have the time & just buy a selection of different sized envelopes!
I added a matt of red paper & the heart design paper which was from a set I got at  
Before sticking this to the base card, I wrapped a length of red organza ribbon around it & tied in a bow.
I added a smaller matt of the red & the heart papers which I wrapped another length of ribbon around. 
I then topped that with three buttons that I threaded with a little bit of blue ribbon then simply knotted. 
I hope you like my card! Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate it!
