It's a Wedding or at least a Wedding Card.....

It's Challenge #12 at Sugar Creek Hollow , Pearls and Swirls and the more the merrier. This is one of those projects that just evolved and took on a life of it's own.  I knew that I wanted to focus on a sentiment as my focal point and I love this set from Gina K Designs "A Beautiful Life" and of course my wedding theme was born. I started with GKD card stock layered with Glitz Pretty in Pink papers, after doing a corner punch, I used another of Martha Stewart's border punches to make a base for my trim. This beautiful floral trim which has a tulle layer with it is so pretty in person and see the pearl trim, isn't that gorgeous.....that is another one that I picked up in my lace haul and the one that was the most expensive, 99 cents a yard, crazy huh? I added larger flat back pearls in the openings.
I had a small strip of the pearls after trimming, so I added that to my flowers. 

I knew there was no way this was going into an envelope, so I created a box out of Bazzill card stock, decorating it to match my card.

I used the same elements from my card....I was really happy with my punched border on the box lid.

I used the same papers for the inside!
