Love, Love, Love!

Today I'd just like to show you all a card I made for a very special couple from my church. They just got married last week! They are 81 & 78 years old! They are like youngsters in love....it is SO cute! We are so happy for them! They are both very active, healthy, vivacious people, both love the Lord...a great match!


The bride wore a lovely light red dress for the wedding so I colored the image accordingly!
The foil is actually some very old gift wrap. It doesn't show up well in the photo but there is pearl acrylic paint daubed on the embossed background and on the gray sponged ink as a frame around the image. Stickles were added only to the flowers...and to the heart on the inside of the card.


On the inside I wanted to carry through the "scrolly" idea and still keep it simple.
I thought the Bible verse was so appropriate because I remember the groom saying to me shortly after they got engaged, "Who would have thought we could feel like teenagers in love again?"

Here is my list of ingredients:
Card front
Cuttlebug embossing folder*- "Madison"
Spellbinders dies*- "Labels 15" & "Fleur de Lis Accents" (border)
Pollycraft digital image- "Cuthbert & Kiki Wedding" colored with
Spectrum Noir & Memento markers*
Memento ink*- "London Fog"
Adirondack Metalics paint dauber*- "Pearl"
Ranger Stickles*- "Star Dust"
Clear gems & white pearls- from my stash
Card stock and foil- from my stash
Card inside
Sentiment is computer generated
Spellbinders dies*- "Card Creator" (used for mask for sponged frame) &
"Fleur de Lis Accents" (corners)
JustRite Bible verse*- "Cast All Your Cares"
Inkadinkadoo heart stamp- "Love & Friendship"

*these items all came from my friend Cindy's wonderful online store www.stampingscrapping.com

I am entering this card in several challenges, some of which want us to use up old stuff from our stashes of supplies (I LOVE those challenges that make me rediscover and use up neglected items!). The really old and/or neglected stuff is: the Spectrum Noir & Memento markers, the clear gems, the foil and the Inkadinkadoo stamp.
