Love Birds...

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend...well, and are still having one since there are still a few more hours left. Today's card is a card I made for my cousin and her husband. They are celebrating 1 year of marriage next week. I remember  those days..lol. Anyway, so I wanted to use some nice soft colors and what should pop up this morning but this week's Curtain Call Challenge. LOOK at these colors, y'all:



Ok, so they don't scream wedding..but once I started my card, I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like. Using the Almost Amethyst as my base color was the best decision I made. It made such a difference in the way it came out. So here is my card:




What do you think? It's kinda busy, but I think I really like it. I love that you can color the new Stampin Up Rosettes. They come vanilla, but I used my Almost Amethyst marker and made it match..I have GOT to buy more of those!! :)

Well, I've got to get ready for Awana. Thank you for stopping by!
