 I am actually the last stop on the hop before returning to the Ruby Rock-It blog.  
So I made two very simple, easy wedding cards to share with you.  First up:

This card literally took me 5 minutes to make.  It was so easy.  I laid vellum on the card, then I layered and placed my focal piece on my card (came from this cardmaking kit) and added the lace and congratulations.  My final step was adding just a bit of hand-stitching.
Then there's this card:
Isn't that blinged out flower fabulous?  I liked the way it looked in the package so I just adhered the bling to the cardboard backing and cut it out.  
I also used some other packaging on my card...did you notice it?  I had received something that was wrapped in that thin styrofoam like packaging (don't know what it is actually called).  Well I used it on my card.  All about recycling.  :)  I really love the way it looks.  
Ok, well now it's time to hop back to the Ruby Rock-It blog.

How clever to use the bling packaging for the base of your flower - thank you for sharing this fun tip :)
PS - I cannot ever imagine making a 5-minute card, 5-day is more my pace!!!
