"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

For the Newlyweds

Gary's niece married on June 16th and this was the card I made for them.  Their colors were chocolate brown and olive, but I just couldn't fit much olive into a wedding card!  Melissa married a good friend of Gary's and we're so happy for both of them.  The wedding was very, very western as our new nephew, Richie, is as much of a cowboy as any man can be!  Melissa is a recent college graduate (nursing) and it's been a busy couple of months for both of them.  I hear she's pretty handy during branding time, too!

Card base: Very Vanilla (SU)
Layers: Gold, Early Espresso & Very Vanilla (SU)
Stamp Set:s: Apothecary Art & Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU); Rose from Golden Years (CTMH) and embossed with gold embossing powder
Labels Framelits Dies (SU)
Gold Pen for edge of sentiment
Roses & Leaves colored with Mellow Moss & Barely Banana makers (SU)
Cream sheer ribbon: JoAnn's

Note: the brown edge on the left & bottom is poor photography, not part of the card!
