Congratulations to the Happy Couple

Happy Saturday!  I hope you are all enjoying the weekend!!  The weather here has been fabulous - a bit cooler and it feels like fall is in the air.  Such a nice change after all the hot and dry weather we had here in the Midwest all summer.

This week over at Tuesday Alchemy, the challenge is Peace, Love and Happiness in honor of International Peace Day coming up on Friday the 21st.  My step-nephew is getting married in about 3 weeks and I thought this would be a great opportunity to get a card made for him and his bride.  I figure it's fitting for the challenge because I wish them nothing but many many years of peace, love and happiness together!

I used their invitation for inspiration in making their card.  Here is their invitation:

And here is the card I made:

Cardstock from Bazzill and Recollections
Couple from Sweethearts cut at 3 inches
Flowers from Flower Shoppe cut at 1, 1.25 and 1.5 inches
Leaves from Flower Shoppe cut at 1 and 1.25 inches
Crinkle ribbon
Pearl gems
White chalk
Sentiment from My Craft Spot's Happily Ever After set


  1. Fabulous Card! Great idea to use the invitation for inspiration :D
