Wedding Card with Cats

For me this is a really embellished card. I picked up inspiration from several challenge blogs to make this one.
My first inspiration was wedding/love. I decided to use my new cats die from Marianne and red heart shaped sequins for a shaker card. I covered the cats with frantage.
The theme of music also came to mind, hence my choice of DP from Landstoken for the cats' background and the flowers from Storyteller as both have musical note patterns. I then chose to keep with lighter colors, so I used a die from Marianne to cut out a frame of kraft covered with white gesso. Other DPs from Fabscraps. String, pearls and wooden butterfly button from my stash. I machine stitched with white thread and ruffled up the edges. For a sentiment I used vellum and curled the edges to make a scroll. The stamp is from Marianne, and I heat set the sentiment - "L'amour" - with gold glitter EP.

This card is for these challenges:
1) TIME OUT Challenges - #13 If music be the food of love play on
2) Marianne's Design Divas - Anything Goes (2 dies+1 stamp)
3) Storyteller - #22 Wedding (brown flowers)
4) City Crafter Challenge - #227 I see clearly (acetate+vellum)

Gosh I thought Frantage was only white! I do love the soft colouring here and the distressed edges add a little bit of a funky contrast to the softness. So pleased you joined us at TIME OUT Challenges Pia xx

This really looks like layers of fabric that you've lightly stitched together and embellished. It's a beautiful effect.

This is such a fabulous card! I love the stitched and ruffled edges, contrasting with the chic cats and beautiful frame. Those loopy bits of string and twine are so the rage at the moment. Love the look of that too.

I have those same kraft flower and matching butterflies. Lately I noticed that they have corner pieces to match as well! I am resiting them till i finish my 100 cards challenge.
They look great here with the soft pink.
