The happy couple is in their late 50's or early 60's, both have been previously married, and since they opted out on gifts, I made a card.
Too bad my 'bright idea' didn't launch until an hour before I had to get ready, and thank goodness for challenges to get your creativity flowing!
I was inspired by This week's challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room . Challenge #124 is to use the colors in the photo and add a flower. Here is the photo:

|Side View - flowers are hat pins with green glass and pearl flowers|
|My work area and challenge log (of good intentions!)|
The card? Simple. No frills. Just get 'er done. I have to say, when I look at the other entries, I am blown away by all the shabby details! You should go look. Those ladies are downright talented!
Have a Great Day, and thanks for stopping by!
