A Wedding Envelope for Stampacular

I couldn't do last week's challenge Stampacular challenge due a small problem - I kept eating the chocolate on the way home from the shop - consequently I never had any chocolate to make a holder for!! In the end I gave up.

Stampacular Sunday Challenge has Weddings as the theme for this week. I decided to make an envelope which can hold a cheque or gift voucher. I used Stempelglede grunge flourish stamps on a downloaded paper, decorated the edges with lace and gold braid, used a flourish heart stamp I bought the last time I was in Germany and embossed it with gold powder. The flowers are a mixture of hand made and bought. to which I attached a couple of gold rings. Not my normal type of card but I was in an experimental mood and have to say I can't make my mind up whether I like it or not.

Please do excuse the terrible photograph.
