Made with Love

For some reason I am excited to post this card for you all to see today :) I am quite proud of how it turned out. I started it last night after we recieved an invitation to John's friends wedding. I followed Lauras fab sketch #28 from 2Sketches4You I love the symetry and simpleness, allows for so many different interpretations! And over at The Pink Elephant They have a wedding theme. I was going to put a sentiment up the top, but I cant think of anything I like that fits, I thought maybe "Love is in the air..." I'll have to get some rub ons in town tomorrow, but I'm quite happy to leave it. I did want to try distressing the edges of the brown and green papers and then sewing but I packed my sewing machine away until I get a desk in here sooo... maybe I'll try distressing on my next card. I've seen so many fab cards that makes me want to try it!
I'm going to make a little paper pocket on the inside as they have asked for money (in a nice way with a poem) instead of gifts.
I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful and creative day :) I surley am! Thanks for stopping by and as always would love to hear what you think! Please have a look at my blog candy too... there's a link up top! Happy blogging xx
I used WorldWin Treasures white cardstock for the base, brown paper from my stash, the green spotty paper, and bird paper is possibly Dena? if thats a brand, I got it off ebay in a big box and some has lables and some doesn't. Flowers are bag of blooms, ribbon from stash and lace from spotlight, button from beutron, for the birds I used a free download from Aussie Scrapbooking Bird/Tree cutouts. The little charm is from ebay, I think I got 20 for $2 they are etched in each side with 'made with love'.
