1 Recycled Wedding Invite = 2 Cards

My friend got married last Saturday--and a beautiful wedding it was!  I was about to throw away the wedding invite yesterday but couldn't resist the B&W patterned card base . . . so I took apart the invite and ended up making these two cards.
Actually, I made the first card for the EBTKS sketch challenge (my second attempt), but then realized the deadline was yesterday (silly me).  When I looked at the patterned paper--I could see the 3 circles from the sketch.

I printed the sentiment right onto the card base (I created a whole bunch of sentiments on Word several days ago and they've become my new favs).  This is my first BIG bow on a card too--definitely one that will have to be hand delivered.

Here's the other card I created with that gorgeous patterned paper.  The muted tones made me think of a sombre occasion.
Thanks 4 your time!
