Wedding Bells

Morning everyone! My oldest son, Scott, has a friend that is getting married this coming weekend. Todd and I were invited to the wedding but we will not be able to attend. We did, however, purchase gifts for the couple so I just had to have a card, right?

Funny story...I text'd my son to see what the wedding colors are. His answer...purple and blue. Okay, great...which shades of purple and blue? *Sigh* So...I just went with what I thought looked nice and this card is what I came up with. The image and sentiments are downloaded from a digital stamp company that I've been acquainted with in the past. A little bit of coloring, some glitter pen and a beautiful length of ribbon (can you tell I love this ribbon?) and it was all pulled together. I decided to add the "for the newlyweds" sentiment after it was all put together and I didn't quite get it placed where I wanted so you can't see if very well...darn it!

We have two gifts for the newlyweds so I wanted to make a tag for the second gift as I'm sure they will get separated. That is what you see laying in front of the card.

Anyway, the other photo is what I have inside the card. I'm pleased with how this turned out and I wish David and Lisa many happy years together!

See ya tomorrow with another Abundant Hope card! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
