Elegant Wedding Card, take two!

This is the second wedding card I made for this week's challenge on The Friday Mashup. (Yeah! I can link again... it's every other post that I can't... weird...).
Anyway, if you read my other post, my niece was getting married (she is now married, October 15th! Congrats L and R!), and I saved her wedding invitation and wanted to use it to make her a card. This has a base of Very Vanilla, and then a layer that is made out of a second flap of the invitation. This one has the swirly, floral thing, too, just not as much of it, lending it perfectly to following the sketch of the week. I added a layer of vanilla, embossed. Then I I added a square of Soft Suede that is wrapped with a piece of ribbon that is totally recycled. What I think is so cool about this ribbon is my friend Susan gave it to me. But wait... there's more. Her brother sent it to her. He got it from his friend who works at a department store and he saves all the ribbon from returned gifts. She gets huge massive amounts of this gorgeous grosgrain ribbon... and she's kind enough to share it with me!!!! How cool is that recycled story? I added the sentiment from the Word Play stamp set. I stamped it in suede on vanilla. I added a little bling on the diamond of the ring. I punched it out with 1 3/4" circle. I popped that up using stamping dimensionals on a 2" circle of the wedding invitation. Then I popped that up, too!
Thanks for looking...
