The Cutest Couple EVER!

Hello hello hello! I hope you are having a fabulous Friday & looking forward to the weekend. I sure am & the best part is I have noooo plans.... can you say craft-a-thon?! LOL. We recently retired from a business we had & it's so exciting to have so much "me" time now!

Today's card is one I made for my hubby for our 5th anniversary. I'm cheating a little cuz our anniversary was back in August but I just love this card & had to share it anyway. I just love it when my cards turn out way better than I thought they would. It doesn't happen all that often but it's cool when it does! And since I always have to make excuses for my crappy Blackberry camera my hubby just ordered me an iPhone! It won't be here for a week or 2 but when it does I'll finally be able to post decent pictures that are bigger than a damn postage stamp! Can't wait!

OK so here are the details of this card.......
This is a 5-1/2" square card. I rounded the edges with my Fiskars small corner punch. The card itself is just made from some white cardstock from my stash. The black 1st layer & the grey & black on the dude are from DCWV's "Black Currant" stack. The cardstock used for the 2nd base layer & the sentiment are from DCWV's "The Luxury Stack". The bride, groom & sentiment are cut with my Cricut Expression Pink Journey Edition machine & designed on my Gypsy. The bride is cut at 3" & the groom is cut at 3-1/2" (they are both from the Cricut "Simply Charmed" cartridge).The sentiment is from the Cricut "Beyond Birthdays" cartridge, cut at 1-1/2".  I used Stickles (which I got from Beverly's but they're available lots of other places too) on the bride's headband & flowers. I embossed her dress with my Cuttlebug V2 using the "D'Vine Swirls" folder (I love this folder & use it more than any other). The loopy punch on the bottom is from Martha Stewart. The ribbon is from my stash & the 3 little white pearls on the ribbon are too. The white faux stitching is done with a white Uniball Signo pigment ink pen.

Well..... I think that just about covers it. Thanks for stopping by & I'll see y'all again real soon! Have a great weekend!.......
