2 cards in 1 night

I had one night to get 2 cards done last week for this weekend. The good news is that I got them done! There really isn't bad news.... yay!

The first card was for a wedding for my boyfriend's cousin's wedding this past Saturday. We talked about go-to cards last week, and this is definitely my go-to card for a wedding. I used all neutral colors since I wasn't sure what her wedding colors were.
The heart is an old punch I got from somewhere.... I cut 1/2in strips of paper in black gray and silver (the silver is from SU! the other paper is from a paper by the pound local store) and weaved them together. Glued that behind the heart punch and layered like so. The pearls are just pre-stuck bling I had in my stash.
The second card I needed was for my boyfriend. This Sunday was our 1 year anniversary. I didn't want to make anything to mushy and girly for him, but it had to be right for the occasion. Here is what I came up with
Sorry, the lighting for these pictures was horrible. I don't have the best lighting in my apartment.....
So this was made with pattern paper from an old DCWV paper stack. I used a white base with pattern paper on top. I used SU!'s top note die for the main focus mat. The 3 punches from SU!'s label punch were from a matching pattern paper from DCWV. The stamp is from SU!'s Sage Advice and I used bliss blue to stamp and to sponge the die cut. Again, I used some random pre-stuck bling to finish it off. The boyfriend loved it, along with the wall mounted guitar holder I got him :)
