Happily Ever After

My beautiful Neice Samantha is getting married on Saturday.  She is marrying a wonderful guy, Scott.  I wanted to make a special card for a special girl!!  I chose a stamp by Lily of the Valley called I Do.  I just think this is such a darling stamp!  Only thing is Scott is at least a foot taller than Sam.  Oh well!!  Her colors are purple and charcoal.  I decided to make a shaped card with my Grand Calibur.  Love that thing! I used some papers that I had from Close To My Heart that I think are gorgeous for a Wedding. 
I had bought these ribbons specifically for this card.  The large and smallest roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, while the two middle roses are from Recollections. I chose to follow the sketch over at One Crazy Stamper for their monthly challenge.  It is a super cute sketch.  It is so close to the sketch for the CMC Birthday Event as well I am entering it into that challenge as well. Susanne Dean is having fun challenges all week to celebrate the birthday of the CMC site.

And of course a couple shots of the inside of the card.
The wedding is this Saturday and I am super excited to see my family.  All 4 of us syblings and our spouses will get to spend some time together and I am pumped!!  Can't wait.  As always thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

Now this is one gorgeous card, I absolutely love it!! These shaped cards are really stand out, the paper and embellies are lovely, but the IMAGE ~ swoon! So sweet and fantastically coloured. I really like the lacey circle nestie sentiment idea too. BTW, absolutely NOTHING wrong with hubby being a foot taller than wifey, yeah, you guessed it I'm 5'2" and my darling in 6'1" :-)
