Happy Wednesday, Sweet N Sassy Stampers!

May 26, 1982.

Thirty years ago, I married my best friend.  It was a gorgeous spring day in Morgan Hill, California and we stood under a flower laden arch in the back yard of my aunt and uncle.  Even my aunt's goats wore bow ties.  If I think about all that we have been through in those 30 years, it makes my head spin.   But the important things is that we are happily married still to this day.

So, I felt it appropriate to make a wedding card for today's post.

I took two heart shaped wooden buttons and turned them into a bride and groom using acrylic paints and 1/2 pearls.  This sentiment from the Calla Lily set was perfect for a wedding card, don't you think?

Die cut layers with a vellum sentiment sandwiched between hover over a die cut cross.   Finally, I draped some yummy white ribbon topped with a beautiful flower.   

What do you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Beautiful, Holly...this sentiment holds a special place in my heart as it's my life's prayer - I wrote it to the SNSS team at one stage, and Dina said it'd be perfect for a stamp - and here it is!!! I love having such talented friends! And YOU are one too, this is simply stunning!
