All Mixed Up - Creation #6

I used one of the very few shapes on the "All Mixed Up" cartridge to create this fun and whimsical wedding card.
I actually created an embossing folder using the heart shape.  I created it in Cricut Craft Room by placing two different sizes of hearts (1" and 3/4") all over the embossing sheet.  I embossed the purplish colored paper with my unique embossing folder. 

The card itself is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  The card base is a pre-made white card by DCWV.  The purplish colored cardstock is 5 1/4"x4" and the pink patterned paper is 4"x2."  The pink patterned paper is from the Happy Day stack by My Mind's Eye.  I cut some olive colored cardstock at 3 1/4"x2 1/2" and some light green cardstock at 3 1/8"x2 3/8" as some mats.  I cut some white cardstock at 3"x2 1/4" and I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the white cardstock.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and the ink is hint of pesto by Tsukineko. 

I used another of the heart images for my image.  I cut it at 2" for both the shadow and the regular feature.  I adhered the green mats and white piece to the card with foam tape for some dimension.  I finished off the front of the card with some buttons by Favorite Findings.  I ran some blossom twine by The Twinery through the dark green buttons and tied a bow with the twine through the light green one. 

I made this card for the following challenges:
