For Time and All Eternity -My Craft Spot Project

Someday in my future my beautiful daughters will get the opportunity go be married... no, there are not any plans yet... but a mom can think ahead right?
This weeks challenge at My Craft Spot is:
 Invitations and Announcements
(parties, weddings, new baby etc.)
I love Kimberly's "Happily Ever After" stamp set, the fonts are so beautiful and the sentiments are just perfect for wedding announcements or congratulations cards or gifts.
I made a "Save the Date" announcement, this would be a hand deliver card idea because of the flowers, but is is nice to make such a card for special close friends and family members, and this card was quite easy to put together, a plus when you are making several.
 This card measures 10 3/4" x 5", it's been scored at 2 1/2" and 6 3/4". I've used the EK Success Border Punch Swirl for the design on one side of the folded edge, then layered a piece of Stampin Up! Bordering Blue (retired color) cardstock behind the punched image.
The flowers and leaves are from I am Roses, I used a red rose and two white cherry blossoms, I love these mulberry flowers and they are quite inexpensive with reasonable shipping costs too. 
 I made a removable belly band to place over the card to keep it closed, added the tag with a white organza ribbon bow and hot glued the flowers to the bow. Added a large heart eyelet to the tag for a bit more color.
Using my Sweetheart cricut cartridge I cut out the cute couple on page 46 at 4",  glued them the the center of the card, then printed on a piece of velum the save the date info... just planning ahead :)
Added two red heart eyelet to the vellum and a white ribbon knot, then attached the back of the ribbon the the card, so the vellum could be lifted up to see the sweet couple.
