Color Combo Challenge Anniversary Card

Hi Everyone,
Time for a new Color Combo Challenge over at the Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog. I think you are going to love this combo. This the the challenge is to create a project using the colors:
Steel Blue and Rose
For my Design Team card, I used the Color Combo colors to create an anniversary card for my parents' anniversary. Take a look.
I also did a little stamping on the envelop. Here is a close up of that.

Now back to the card. The Bride's dress and heart stamps are from Inkadinkado. CS: Bordering Blue and Blushing Bride from Stampin' Up; and White. Inks: Bordering Blue and Blushing Bride - SU.
The card base is made from Bordering Blue and layered with Blushing Bride CS. The image was stamped in Bordering Blue, hearts in Blushing Bride ink. The pink stamped strip was made by stamping the heart repeatedly on white cs. I rotated the stamp to fill in all the spaces. I used a little glimmer Mist on the pieces before adding them to the card.

For accents, I used a wide sheer white ribbon and silver pearls. The sentiments are on the inside. They are all from My Sentiments Exactly. I also added more hearts and another piece of the stamped strip. Here is the inside.
