I am invited to a bridal shower in Michigan this coming weekend for a couple who now live in Ireland. She is from Michigan and he is from Ireland. They met when they were both veterinary residents specializing in equine medicine. What an accomplished couple who have travelled all over the world to help with fowling season in the U.S. and Australia and with special surgeries for horses. Anyway, the wedding is in July, 2010 on the southern coast of Ireland and it is sure to be a fabulous event.
Now back to my project, the paper certainly makes this card what it is. The two birds which I thought resembled love birds are perched on a wild rose bush in front of a pastel background. I cut the image from a 12x12" paper pad made by K&Company called The Best of Brenda Walton. If you have read earlier blogs, I have used this paper successfully in several projects. I just love it. Some of the papers are very nostalgic and others complement the designs. In any event, I used another part of the paper for the inside where I printed a short verse that I found on the internet. The simple organza bow at the top adds a softness to the front of the card. I didn't know what type of sentiment to put on the card so I just cut a shower umbrella using my Cricut New Arrivals cartridge and wrote the date and the location of the shower. I think it works.
