To the happy couple!

Hi Fellow Crafters!
I hope that you are all enjoying this hump day!
I am really looking forward to this weekend. I have a lot going on. On Saturday, we have a wedding to go to for my husband’s co-worker. I am a little nervous because the reception is a the country club and lets face it I am just a small time country girl. I know nothing about country club etiquette and I am worried that I will use the wrong fork and it might cause the world to stop turning or something. Just kidding. But I AM NERVIOUS ABOUT THAT! And on Sunday its my BIRTHDAY!!!! I will be 31! I was so worried about turning 30 that I cried for days but this year has been full of wonderful things and I learnt a lot about myself. So bring on 31 I am ready for it!!!

Ok back to the wedding. I had to make a card for the happy couple and I am not sure that I like this one but for now this is what I am going with but I may change my mind at the last minute.
I used the sweetheart’s cartridge to cut out the Mr. and Mrs. Image. I used purple cardstock and then cut the shadow on a shimmery purple velum. I add a little doodle to that.
Then I placed vellum over the mat layer only at the top to create a muted look. BTW that paper is from a black and white slice stack by making memories. I found it at Tuesday morning and couldn't pass it up for 1.99.
The ribbon is from wal-mart. The picture doesn’t really show it but it has shimmer as well.
I think it might have taken me 15 minutes to cut it all out and put it together. Super cute and super easy.

Well that is all I have for today, Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This is a beautiful card, you did an awesome job!! I am so sure your friends loved it. I also want to say Happy Birthday to You! I hated all the numbers that ended in 9, starting with 29, then 39 and so on. They are ugly numbers:) Hugs, Pam at
