Sizzix Accordion Album Autumn Wedding Card

I've been suffering from a sadly depleted mojo lately (probably because I've not felt very well for a couple of weeks), but today I absolutely had to make a wedding card. I received an invitation from America, from a young man who I used to teach at church a few years ago, when he was over here with his military family. It was great to hear about his upcoming marriage, and see pictures of him and his lovely fiance.
I wanted to make them an Autumny card, but with a soft, country, romantic feel too.
I used Karen Burniston's classic Accordion Album die, along with the 'Frame and Label, Bracket' die for the outer patterned frames. I also got to use my brand new 'Labels and Stitched Frames' Framelits set, also by Karen, which co-ordinates perfectly with the Accordion Album shape, and also has three dies which add the wonderful stitched effect, in different sizes!
I used Beacon's glue to add thin twine across the card, and the same glue to stick little leaves and bunting flags onto it. The leaves are from Tim Holtz's 'Autumn Gathering' decorative strip die. The stamped sentiment (which I clear embossed) is also from Tim Holtz, and the '&' is from Cricut 'Base Camp' cartridge.
The stitched hearts are from Lil' Inker Designs.
Everything was edged with black distress ink, and the papers are from K&Co a 'Classic K Charlotte' pad.
