Wedding cards

I made these cards recently; one for my best friend and husband and the other for my cousin and his wife. The pink and black matched the wedding colors, as well as the polka dots emulating the dice as the wedding was in Vegas!

For the second one I was inspired by their wedding invitations, which were beautiful and created by the bride, who is a very talented artist! I wanted to use floral and a bluish-green color. (It's difficult to see in the picture, but I used the small and large heart with flowers inside) I also wanted to use the same heat embossing technique as the other wedding card and make it simple and classy.
I carried them all the way across the country with me, but forget to give them out, so they are headed into the mail tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by!

Both of them are very elegant. I especially like the second one. I haven't thought to use those two colors together, and you made it look beautiful.
