Wedding Bells Ring!

A friend of ours is getting married in June so I thought I would make he and his soon to be bride a wedding card.

I do believe LOTV makes the sweetest images and I do love this little couple!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Shelly's Images Blog - Show Us What You've Got

I do so appreciate all your sweet comments.
