Caardvarks Wedding Card Challenge

Hi everyone!
Here's my submission for the Caardvarks wedding card challenge.   I don't have very many wedding stamps, so I improvised with the help of my Cricut and Cuttlebug.   I just love my little bugs - love love love :o).   Anyhow, here are the deets:

The cake was cut on the Cricut using the Sweet Treats cartridge.   I cut everything out of white card stock, assembled all the layers, and then I added Crystal Stickles to the swirls and teen tiny sticky pearls to the base of each cake layer.   The little heart at the top of the cake and two butterflies were made with punches, and I added Stickles to them as well - because I like sparkles. 


The cake plate was cut from baby blue card stock, and then I used a sponge and some turquoise ink to add shadows to the edges.    

The rest of the card was pretty easy - just layers of DCWV metallic blue card stock, baby blue card stock, and white card stock.   The layer right behind the cake was made by running a piece of the DCWV metallic blue paper through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.   I have absolutely no idea where I acquired the blue and white striped ribbon, but I do know that the metal slide was made by Making Memories.


Well I hope you enjoyed my card today & thanks for visiting!   Hopefully you don't have too much snow if your neck of the woods!   I'm breathing a sigh of relief today because the weather men were calling for a lot more than we got.   My poor son though --- he SOOOOOO wanted a snow day.    Oh well - maybe next snow storm.   :o)    Have a great day & God bless!
