Spring Wedding

When I first saw this dream2stamp I thought Wedding but with the birdhouse I could only think of new home, so I managed to mask the house out and using some rub on's for the letters. Then when I saw Bea's sketch on her blog, I thought this would work well with them, the patterned paper is SEI and I bet the camera hasn't picked up the glitter. I checked out the Cute Card Challenge before doing this post and discovered its for Citrus Colours, how spooky is that, this card is perfect for that challenge too.

I had this imaged coloured in already and decided to use if for the sketch on sketch and Stash challenge. Its a great sketch and you can choose where you want you embellishments but I've kept it very simple.



Many thanks to Karen for this fab award, so sweet to think of me.
