Happily Ever After Lace Wedding Card...

Oh wow, I am amazed that I am able to get another project done before another week has passed.  The reason for that is because I have to make this Card for my Nephew-in-law that had his wedding just last weekend.  But here's the funny story...I was aware for many weeks when the Wedding Day was supposed to be but for some reason, I hadn't remember to buy a gift nor make a card until 10 AM of the day of the Wedding...And we had quite a ways to travel to the wedding venue and had about 4 hours before we need to be there.  So, needless to say, I went into an initial panic mode...LOL  Sent my hubby to buy a gift and made this card in just 2 hours...Now, that is record breaking for me because I was not planning to make a very simple card.  I didn't even know where to start but I thank the Lord because He definitely gave me the ability to make this and when I was done, I was truly happy with the results.  Anyway, I used Mo Manning digi image of a Wedding dance couple as my main image.  I colored with my Prismacolor and Sharpie markers.  I used MS Trellis Punch and punched borders on two sides of my white CS and added some stitching.  My outside sentiment came from Cloud 9, the inside sentiment came from the Bible and the vellum envelope sentiment came from Paper Studio.  To finish it all up, I added a lace (store-bought) and an Irish rose I crochet myself.  Placed a pearl brad in the middle and voila, an elegant Wedding card.  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.   MAWTT featuring "Special Lady"
2.   Digi Designs featuring "Pastels" 
3.   Digi Doodle Shop's Best featuring "People" 
4.   Poodles Parlour featuring "Anything Goes"

HAPPILY EVER AFTER LACE WEDDING CARD WITH VELLUM ENVELOPE:

Oh yes, we ran a bit late for the Wedding rehearsal as my son was asked to be the Ring Bearer but made it with enough time to spare for the Wedding itself...Still my question is, how come I forgot about all these things?  Oh well, I don't have any answer but hoping to avoid similar problems in the future...LOL  So, again, thank you, Father God, for giving me the ability to finish this project.  You are awesome!  For those that enjoyed this post, please don't forget to leave a comment.  I love reading and responding to them.  Hugs!
