Criss Cross Wedding Card

This is a card I had to do in a hurry for my sister - she needed a wedding card urgently. I usually spend quite a few hours on my cards - I'm a slow cardmaker - but I hope it turned out OK for the occasion...
I've used a black and white DP with love sentiments and a DP with roses. I've decorated with white tulle, soft pink ric rac ribbon, some pearls and a metal charm.
There is no stamped image, only a stamped "congratulations" sentiment which I've heat embossed.
I've used a Martha Stewart punch for the edges of the card inside the envelope.

I enter this card into these challenges:
1) Penny's Paper-Crafty - #104 More than 1 fold
2) ABC Challenges - Anything Goes
3) Pile It On - Anything but a Christmas Card
4) Paper Pretties Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
5) Joanna Sheen Challenge - Anything Goes excluding Christmas
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Very beautiful card Pia. Gorgeous papers and I love the tulle bow with pink ric elegant. I am also a very slow card maker. I colour items and store them until I find my mojo which usually amounts to several unfinished items going at once. hugs, Pat K xx

This doesn't look like a quick card at all. I am super slow too! I play with moving my elements all around on my background!
Your card is so very elegant and that little charm is gorgeous! You did such a perfect job of tucking in the beautiful trim on the diagonal folds of the card.

Saw your card over on MIM and thought I'd stop by to say hi. Your card turned out beautiful even if you feel it was rushed, it certainly doesn't look like it. I really like your choice of colours and that bow with the heart is so pretty. Thanks so much for sharing your design.
