Looking Into The Future

This is for my cousin's fiance who's bridal shower is coming up really soon.  I wanted it to have that "vintage" look yet kinda romantic. I still need to find some kind of sentiment that talks about making the preparations for the wedding... Also, this was my first time making a "Gate Fold" card. Plus, the flowers in the bouquet below the bride, they are handmade.  Those took some time but I am very pleased how they turned out.  I think it all turned out really pretty.  I hope she likes it and appreciates handmade cards.

I used:
Gypsy Font Cartridge
Forever Young Cartridge
Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge
Potpourri Basket Cartridge
Gray Card stock
DCWV the glitter card stock stack
K & Company Life's Journey Paper
Red Ink
Mustard Glimmer Mist
Recollections Pearl Stickers
Ribbon, lace, and rose button are from my stash

The Front before being opened

The inside after it is opened.  The sentiment/poem with signature will be on each side.

Thank you so much for looking and stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
