Elegant Wedding Card

Hey everybody!  Hope you're having a fantastic week so far. 
 I have this wedding card that I am really excited to share with you.  We have a very special friend that is getting married this year, and I wanted to make something special for her.  Something simple, but elegant.  I hope I pulled that off.  Let me know what you think.

I used a lovely brown paper My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found Blush stack).
I added some beautiful Burgundy Satin Ribbon and a white fabric rose.
I used some music note tape that I found at Michael's.
And Glitter.  Lots of Glitter.  Of course.
I used a Stamping Bella Uptown Girls Stamp called Brigitte.
I took a white piece of cardstock, cut it like a tag, and some sky blue ink.  I applied the ink carefully to the tag to completely cover it.  You have to be careful not to put too much pressure on the ink pad or you will leave lines in the coloring.  It adds a nice soft look for the background.
I used a glue pen to color in the wedding dress and then added the white glitter.  I added a little bit of glitter to the bouquet, and some silver glitter for the headpiece.
I would like to enter this into the Sweet Stop Challenge this week.
I think they have some awesome sketches!
