A Christmas wedding - and a first christmas together!

I had the honour of attending a Christmas wedding last week...

...and it looked stunning!
The Christmas tree with all its twinkling lights,
looked beautiful at the front of the church -
even though the branches of the trees outside, were rapping on the church windows,
on the windiest day of the year! :)
I used my new(ish) docrafts embossing folder, which is my fave at the mo!
Computer generated sentiment.
Martha Stewart punched butterflies and snowflakes.
Organza ribbon with heart buckle.
(and a bit of glittering, here and there!)
I would like to enter this into the following challenges...

I was commissioned to make this card, for the daughter of a friend at work.
Amy and Tom were to have their first Christmas together, as a couple,
and so Amy wanted a really special card - and asked me to make it!
What a compliment! :)
I used my new fave embossing folder again 
and some digi images, which I have had for yonks (and don't use as often as I should!)
grouped together, some straight onto the card and some on foam pads
(behind these, I placed a Martha Stewart punched snowflake).
I handcut the holly , which hangs from the ribbon.
A bit of glitter and glossy accents here and there, finished this card.
Amy was thrilled...Tom too, I believe! xx
