Mr and Mrs

My husband's sister was getting remarried this weekend and I needed a cute card.  I absolutely love the owl punch and had a perfect reason to use it.  I found the inspiration for these bride and groom owls at Lynda's Quiet Time.  I just LOVE how this card came out and those owls are so darn cute!!

Her favorite color is pink so that's why I went with this color scheme.  You could match the colors with the wedding theme if you wanted.  Here's a close up of the owls.

Just a few notes about how to put this card together.  I stamped, embossed and cut the Mr. and Mrs. sentiment so I could loop the ribbon around the & and have it stand out.  I freehand cut the grooms hat and bow tie.  I punched feet in whisper white to make her look like she's wearing shoes.  I used the blender pen and melon mambo ink to make her eyes look like she has shadow on.  The melon mambo heart comes from the owl punch as well.
