Card and frame

Hey all! It's been a while, but I have been working on a little something and I"m finally ready to show it to you.
This is a picture frame and a wedding card I've made for my SIL and her husband. I've got a lot of pictures for this, so I'm just gonna post them and do any long explanations at the end.
Full view of the frame. The colors are terrible cause the paper was shimmery and I just could not get it to photograph well. The first photo is the closest I could get to the actual colors...hate it when that happens!

Flowers close -up. This is actually about right with the colors. All those flowers have been inked on the edges. You can find the template for the larger part here, and the centers are from Wild Orchid.
Criss cross card
Made my opening a little different

Pulled out
The inside stands alone. People like to display their cards and I wanted to give that option with this, so I added a little piece on the back that will allow this card to do that.

This is the little stand I made for the back.
Lastly I have a close-up of this adorable wedding couple. This image is so perfect for the card as my SIL and her husband had a small intimate wedding.
Ok, so that's it. Sorry for the load of pics, but I wasn't sure which ones to post. The papers are DCWV Luxury stack. The punch on the card is fiskers and the shapes around the couple were cut with my circut. Pearls are from my stash. Please forgive my terrible handwriting...this paper is slick and I couldn't print out on it.
The papers on the frame are from the same paper stack and the corners were cut with my cricut, storybook cartridge. The swirly pearl is prima and the ribbony stuff is from JoAnn's.
That's it for me today. Hope you have enjoyed my project! I will hopefully have something more for you in a couple of days. Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
