Of course I'm coming!!!

I made this card to send to my lovely friend Samantha and her fiance Efisio, in acceptance of their invitation to their wedding. The title of this post is because although she knows I'm going...and I've booked a few nights at a local B&B...and I'm going to be playing flute at the wedding too...I'd neglected to send a card...shame on me! lol
I followed the sketch from Card Patterns...keeping it really simple...mainly white, with just a splash of red (taking inspiration from Samantha's gorgeous invite)...which just happens to be the colour combo of this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge. I used my 'Swiss Dots', 'D'Vine Swirls' and 'Victoria' Cuttlebug folders for the embossing, distressing the edges slightly to help define the layers. The hearts were cut using a Cuttlebug die, and I used my Nesties for the circle and label shape...so I'm also going to enter this card into the Daring Cardmakers 'Die Cut Crazy' challenge.
