Simple Wedding Card

I made this card for the upcoming Wedding Season stash.  I admit, I don't really make a lot of wedding cards but do go to a few weddings here or there.  I used to buy them, but my goal this year is to make them all.
For this card, I used the Cricut Sweethearts cartridge for the bells.
The card base measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and was cut using black cardstock by Recollections.
The ivory mat measures 5 1/4" x 4" and was also put through my Cuttlebug using the Seeing Spots embossing folder.  The bell mat measures 4 1/4" x 3 3/4" cut from black cardstock and the patterned paper mat measures 4" x 3 1/2" from Recollections patterned paper.
The bells are found on p. 56 of the manual and were cut at 3".  I used the shadow feature (black) layer feature cut one from ivory patterned paper and again for the lilac or gold bow.  I added stickles to the lilac bow and the gold bow was already shimmery.  I used dimensionals as well.
The inside mat measures the same as the bell mat and the stamp is from Stampin' Up's Occasional Quotes set.
I entered this card in the following challenges:
Exploring Cricut: Use neglected Cartridge

Cardz TV Design Team:  Say "I Do"
