Double Aperture Wedding Card

Here's my Monday night with the girls craft session project from this week.  No homebake this week as my lovely hubby had bought me a birthday cake, so we had that with our cuppa before making double aperture cards.  I decided to make mine for my friend, Gosia, who gets married later this month.
I started with two 6x6 cream blanks, which I covered with Wild Rose Studios magazine freebie papers.  I then cut a large heart shaped aperture on the outside, and a smaller one on the next layer down, using Xcut Homespun Hearts dies which I borrowed from my Mum.  I must get some of my own, they're lovely!
Next I added some rolled roses made with Marianne Dies and some bunting made with that poor, overused Stampin' Up punch.  Some dew drops, which were a lovely birthday present, finish the front off.
Some more die cut heats and a message stamped with an Anita's stamp decorate the next layer down.
On the inside, I added a topper made with an oh so cute Lili of the Valley stamp, coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and a couple of punched butterflies with Pearl Pen trails.
