Love is all around me!

This is the song that will always ring a bell for me: wedding! I am sure everyone knows the song, but just in case: it's HERE. Anyway as I wrote before, I'm not into wedding cards that much, but the challenge of Crafty Pad gave me a kick: natural embelishement? Hmmm, that sounds interesting.
I used groats - we often use it at school for kid's crafting. It gives interesting pattern & structure, looks wonderful sprayed with paint. I left it in its natural colour, 'cos it composed with the mint and white best.
One nasty grain wanted to be a gem & came out from the circle while making this pics - I didn't notice it :D I can assure you it's gone now!
The digi is from PaperCraft Inspirations (HERE).
I also added some hand made pins, ribbons and bows and one faux button - everything mint / white / light brown colour palette.
Don't forget those two butterflies - not only on bride's stomach!
The card is bright & pleasant to watch.
If you are hungry, please come for some groats, being served at the wedding party here:
And now for something completely different:
Do you remember the feeling when you don't know exactly what you actually have in your stash, 'cos all the people around you, who know you make cards, bring you everything they think could be useful? Exactly! I tried to make some order with my ribbons, and I found out, that I have a lot of them. Some of them were even forgotten!
 It took me the whole morning, but I did it! And I'm curious how long it's gonna be like this - you know what I mean :D

P.S. Sorting out my stash is a never ending mission and any tidying never lasts long... is nice to find forgotten things, though!! :)
