Weddings, can they be CAS?

Happy Saturday to you, it's a gorgeous sunny day here but so cold, my mouse hand's frozen:0) 
I've been having a play and tried to do a CAS wedding card, I think there's something missing on this card, what do you think? Does it need something else? I'd really appreciate your honest opinion :0)

I used, Marianne Multi hearts Die, Waltzing mouse sentiments,  Tim Holtz embossing folder and inks, with mica powder painted after for a little shimmer. The colour is a bit pale here IRL it's a peachy colour. I painted the bells with my copics because they are transparent it's let the metal shine through.
I'm off for a warm up........ snuggle time? or brisk walk? which would you choose?
Have a lovely weekend TTFN:0) xxx

Edited to add, Thanks so much everyone, lots of totally helpful suggestions, I really appreciate you taking the time to comment  :0) xxx

Junie said...

It truly is classy !!! I love the way you set out the card !!! I know what you mean I think because I usually put so much on a card when you do something different and put on less you feel there is something missing !!! IT IS PERFECT

I really like it as it is.... but how about a simple cream stitched border? Very elegant, Jo x

Thank you ladies, so good to know it's not missing anything important, you've put my mind at ease:0) x

mustavcoffee said...

And Jo Thank you, yes, I get where you're coming from:0) I had a strip of white velvet paper and stitched some pearls to it but it just didn't work. I'm useless with a sewing machine so wouldn't get it straight:{
I guess that's it although I have got some big bubble wrap could try that, ............nah, I'm going to spoil it if I go on, move onto the next card methinks!!!:0) xxx

Hello you - I'm on a catching up visiting friends mission!!
Oh I know that feeling so well - which is why I'm useless at CAS, I have to add more, and more until it's no longer CAS!!
Leave it just as it is - it's beautiful - so classy and elegant!!

It is beautiful as it is..but I know what you mean..what about a thin frame - just a line of gold pen perhaps, a little in from the edge of the card..? or I soemtimes stick a tiny gem in each corner if I think somethings missing..but don't mess too much and spoil it, as it is lovely - have lost many cards that way!! Esther xx (...and definately a snuggle !)

I love the colours and textures on this beautiful clean and simple card!

I would suggest a brisk walk and then snuggles to warm up. ;)

Its perfect..maybe a small strip of tulle ribbon...something delicate that won't take the focus off the heart but yet add to it..
I really love doing CAS...even though its've got to know where to stop!!
