A Wedding Book Card!

My week is back to normal this week after the boys having days off last week so hopefully I can make use of my time and get ahead with my DT stuff!! I actually made two cards last night after being at a wedding and drinking a little bit more than I had planned.. They are very CAS but I think they turned out ok!!! I'll be posting them tomorrow so you can decide!!
Today I have a book card to show you that I made for the wedding yesterday!!  I didn't really decorate the inside but really love how the front turned out!!

The front of the book card!

Inside view!
Another angled view!!
I bought the "Loving Bride and Groom"stamp from the Magnolia stand at Paperific last weekend (wish I had of bought more - LOL)
I followed the tutorial on Tina's Magnolia blog!! I used Pearl bling cardstock to make the bookcard!! I inked around the edges of all the cardstock layers with pink chalk ink!! I embossed one layer and cut out an oval shape for another! I coloured the image in with tria markers. I tehn added some metal brads (the bird and heart), the flowers and then used my big shot to cut out a tag and stamp the sentiment on (which was from Stampin' Up).. To finish it off I added the ribbon and a metal charm!! I am so happy with the way it turned out!!! Hopefully the bride and groom will love it to!!!
