Tails of True Love - HM&F #40

Happy Monday everyone. Over at House Mouse & Friends Mary has challenged us to make a Wedding or Anniversary card, invitation, gift box - anything with that theme.
This week we are being sponsor by our very own Emma - her Store is called Sassy Crafts

Below is my take on the challenge...

First I want to thank Gwen Fisher (aka tturtle) for this adorable image. It is called "Tails of True Love" HMG1009. I water coloured the image with Stampin Up reinkers. Image and matting was cut out with plain and scalloped nestabilities. Main card is 5"x5" very vanilla. Next is antique rose, then chocolate chip. I ran the chocolate chip panel through the CB with the Swiss dot folder. I used the heart embossing folder on the pink pirouette panel, sponged edges with pretty in pink. The designer paper is from Heidi Grace designs - Cherish & Love. I thought it was the perfect choice for this card. I used my Stampin up scalloped border punch. Sewed edges. Attached the pink sheer ribbon and the little pink pearls (I bought these at the Dollar Store - 35 for $1.00 - awesome deal) . Finished the inside and I'm done. I am very happy with how this turned out.
Below is the inside of my card. Haven't decided on a sentiment yet.

Here is a close up of the card - different angle.

Now it's your turn. Please check out the DT's cards and blogs for some inspiration. Make sure to upload your card on House Mouse & Friends and leave a comment... Happy Stamping.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my little piece of the blogging world.
