Vintage Shabby Chic Wedding Card

Hello everyone,
I am finally back to creating in style that I am the most comfortable at: Shabby and Chic. :)
I had this card in my head and had to transfer it from vision to reality:


I used several layers of of light beige music sheet and damask patterned paper to create this card. All layers have distressed edges.


I used beige rose ribbon and lace ribbon decorated with white pearls on top and bottom of the card to give it extra shabby chic look. :)


The Mr. & Mrs. sentiment was created on my PC using Jellyka Castle's Queen Font and printed on white cardstock. I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags die cut to cut out the window for my sentiment and attached that last layer of cardstock with foam adhesive. I used medium size pearls to decorate the die cut window.


The shabby bow is a seam binding ribbon topped with rose from the ribbon and a jumbo pearl.


One more look at the finished card.

I am entering this card into following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #123 Ribbons/Lace and Pearls
Crafty Creations Challenge #272 Vintage
and
City Crafter Challenge Blog Focus on Sentiment

I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by...
