Wedding Owls

I made this card when a friend requested a wedding card. This isn't my usual style for a wedding card, but my friend loved this owl card I made previously, so I used the SU! owl punch to create this one for her. She LOVED it!! I stamped the sentiment with CTMH grey wool ink and used scraps for the birds, creating a top hat for him, and a veil with pearls for her. You can't see it in the photo, but I added some dazzling diamonds to her dress and shoes, while I added glossy accents to his shoes for that super spiffy shine! The embossed background was done with a SU! ef, and this was done with PTI white and vintage cream cardstock. I punched the wings from the SU! bird punch and added them to the owls so they could be holding wings (cough!) I added glossy accents to the eyes and cut a little necktie for him, and cut little beaks for both of them. These owls are pure fun!
Catch you later!
