Forever is too short

Good Morning everyone and Happy Saturday!
It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar and this month the theme is... Love and Marriage!  For my creation I made a tent topper card with this beautiful image from Wee Stamps called Bird Swing. I colored my image with Copics, cut it out with the #17 Nesties and then I did a little sponging around the edges.  The postage stamp sentiments/die cuts are from Whimsy Stamps... who just happens to be sponsoring our challenge! :)  The dp is from DCWV and the flowers were created with a MFT die.  Added a few pearls and a hand dyed bow to finish it up!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

This is a wonderful love themed card! You've picked such lovely blue colors for your papers and coloring, and the inking around the image is a beautiful touch! Also like the shape you've used for the image, and those stamps with sentiments are fabulous!
