Very simple wedding card

My daughter asked me for a wedding card with
No Flowers, Ribbon and certainly nothing Cute.
She asked for Cream, Red and Black with no bumpy bits.
Now I normally like black to outline features but it was just not right for this card.
I did not expect to like the end result  but to my amazement I do.
It does look quite elegant in RL
Now what do you think?


The entwined hearts are a stamp that I have but first I inked it up with gold
and that did nothing for me.
So then I tried embossing it in gold but my powder is so old it just
made a horrid mess. 
Then I stamped it on a piece of scrap paper and used that
to cut each heart out in red card.
None of my congratulation stamps would fit on the card
so I had to resort to a sticker.
Have just noticed that the lovely spellbinder border die has a heart right in the centre.
How good is that? 
Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in.
