Flair week challenge ~ wedding card

Been super busy this last couple of weeks but I've had to jam in a little bit of crafting time because I wanted to make a wedding card, wedding is tomorrow, (Friday) so I didn't have much time to think of something so looked online for a challenge or some ideas and found the American Crafts Flair challenge. I'm a bit of a Flair collector so it seemed perfect! I wanted to use some of my new American Crafts Dear Lizzy goodies too. I picked out the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Spring 'Lazy Ladybug' patterned paper and because it was a wedding card I went for the 'Romance' Flair and picked out two from the 'love' pack. I also used some 'Salutations' fabric Thickers, they go with the romance theme I think?
The card I made out of white cardstock first and I added a little depth to it to take the chunky embellishments.


The flowers were made with more of the same paper, (used the reverse side) with pearls in the centers and then some added tissue paper flowers and pearl buttons.


Then because it does have depth I had to make a box for it. It'll make it more of a prezzie too as it's going to have some pennies inside.

I wasn't sure about leaving the front so plain but I think it works because there's lots of detail inside?
