Love Birds

This card was mailed to a couple of “love birds” in Belgium: my little sister and her husband of 11 years. Happy Anniversary, G²!

I combined the image from a brand-new SU! hostess set with the word love from an old Sell-A-Bration set, using the SC298 sketch from SCS. Together they fit nicely on the beaded oval die-cut, to which I added a little bit of Old Paper distress ink. Did I mention I love these glimmer brads? This time I used them to embellish a strip of Tasteful Trim, cut from Sahara Sand card stock.

Thanks for stopping by!

    WOW! This is beautiful, Vera! I really like the way the Tasteful Trim is accented and how beautifully it goes with the beaded ovals! You are so good at coordinating things like that!
