Wedding Congratulations

I'm back!!! WOW - two weeks away from cardmaking and I think I was beginning to get a little cranky!

I spent a week down in Florida with the Sacred Heart University (my college) Softball team helping out with their Spring Training trip. Then after a 15 hour travel day from FL to CT (should of taken 5 hours at most) on Sunday...I came home to a house with no power after the huge storm that rolled through the Northeast. Thankfully we sustained little damage to our property but I still wasn't able to get into my craft room until today (Monday!). Yipeee.

One of Cindy and my co-volunteer's at the CT Humane Society got married this weekend. I was able to go to the church to see the ceremony and she looked GORGEOUS! It's funny when we get to see each other dressed up and wearing makeup because normally when we are at the Humane Society we look a little ragged. So, here's the card I made to get me back in the crafty mode.
I grabbed some American Crafts paper from the Letterbox collection. I stamped a Hero Arts birdie stamp on vellum and colored it in with markers and cut it out with a scallop circle. I added some Martha Stewart glitter on the hearts and a little pearl on the bride's flower. I finished it off with a PTI sentiment.

On the inside of the card I stamped a Savvy Stamps wedding cake and colored in with markers. I added some more glitter on the heart topper.
And I finally remembered to take a picture of the inside of the card BEFORE I wrote my sentiments!!!!

Beautiful! I love how you combined something so formal with a little whimsical detail (birds). I've never done anything with the inside of my cards, except write the occasional verse or poem, but you've inspired me! It looks great!
