Wedding cards

I am making these cards as a wedding gift for my BIL and his fiancée. The wedding is at the end of this month. I used a retired stamp set, but the flowers are the same as their wedding flowers, so thought it was fitting! These will be their thank you cards. I will stamp some kind of thank you inside it.

stamps: Loving Memories (retired)
cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, brushed silver
paper: vellum paper
ink: White Craft
accessories: lumiere (retired), chalks, detail silver embossing powder, silver eyelets (set with crop-a-dile)
