Congratulations Lovebirds!


This one is for my little brother Dan and his new wife Carrie, who just tied the knot yesterday! I would be concerned about them seeing this before they get a chance to open it, but I'm guessing they have better things to do at present than check my blog...

Teal and brown were their wedding colors, so I thought this Basic Grey paper was the perfect choice -- of course with a little red thrown in for the color of love... :) I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week. The birdies came from the Cricut "Joys of the Season" cartridge (2 Turtledoves!), cut at 3", and the big background heart came from the George cartridge, cut at 4". I cut the scallop edge on that center strip with my new Stampin Up border punch, and the sentiment comes from the "Congrats" set in the current Sale-a-bration catalog -- still working my way through all my new goodies! :) TFL!
