A Lifetime Together

Good Thursday folks.  Let me first say... THANK YOU to all the men and women that have risked or given their lives to keep our country free.  Your sacrifices are truly appreciated!!  Have a HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!!!

Now for stamping.  My son got married on October 16 and I've still not gotten that card posted... until today.  I looked high an low for the best stamp for this occasion.  Then I found this wonderful Lili of the Valley stamp called Wedding Couple.


I actually saw this image on Dena's Stamping Corner blog.  I took a LOT of inspiration from her wonderful creation, then added some of my favorite embellies and touches.  Thank you for the nudge in the right direction Dena!  Your work is always so wonderful!!


Ryan and Lindsay's wedding colors were eggplant and limey green.  It was really so beautiful!!  I tried to give this little gal's roses an 'eggplanty' look, but I believe I fell a bit shy of that goal.  Oh well... it's still in the same purple family, right?  hahaha!


Their wedding was such a wonderful success.  It went off without a hitch and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely.  The following morning, the bride and groom had immediate family over for brunch and to share with them as they opened their remaining gifts.  That was a really special way to end the weekend.  I gave them this card when everyone else had left.  They really seemed to like it!!  : )  It was definitely made with love!!

I love the modern Vintage style of cards Denise ( or that's what I call it). My DT card follows the same sort of theme. I just love everything about your card. The Lace,pearls,ribbon and flowers are all so well co-ordinated and your image is coloured beautifully.
