Pretty Wedding card made using the Bloom and Artiste cartridges.

Hello, friends!

Today's Bitten By the Bug challenge is wedding themed, so I made this wedding frame card using the Bloom and Artiste cartridges. I also, threw in an Anna Griffin cuttlebug folder called Poppy for good measure. I decided not to add a sentiment as I wanted to keep it super simple and elegant.

I used Echo park paper and Close To My Heart cardstock.
I also used adhesive pearls from Close To My Heart for the flower centers.
