Quick Wedding card

This is probably a record for me.  I think I made this card in approx. thirty minutes!  I had to do up a wedding card fast.  I used the stemmed rose from my Fragrant Rose set I did for Whimsy awhile back.  I also used one of the sayings that Ann designed that comes in the set.  The gorgeous music background is also designed by Ann and it is called Music Notes.  Hey here's a head's up!  Ann is doing a daily giveaway for the month of May to celebrate her 2nd blogversary! There's still time to pay her a visit and get in on it before May runs out of days! 
I ink distressed all the edges using Vintage Photo ink and Stained Walnut by Tim Holtz.  I love those inks! The rose was coloured using Copics. 
I cut it out and popped it up with foam tape. 
I think this is the first time in a year or more that I made a card without a) Spellbinder dies or b) designer paper!  It isn't my usual style, but I like how it turned out! 
There is also still time to get in on my challenge over at Sundays With Crissy!  This month the challenge is easy - Flowers!  Go see what my DT has prepared to inspire you!
Thanks for stopping by!
