Happy Anniversary Lisa!

It's my very good friend Lisa's wedding anniversary today and I just went over and gave her her card so I can post it now. 
Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (My Mind's Eye "Blush")
Ink: Antique Linen DI; Memento
Stamps: bird (HA CG152); sentiment (Unity)
Other: Prima Pearls; PTI die; gem (eye)

I did not want the card to be too busy but I wanted it to have a sense of romance and I was drawn to the patterned paper with the two little birds and that perfect sentiment underneath "such a lovely day"! And  I used some Prima Pearls which I loved doing.  I lightly inked the edges of the main panel as well as the bird which is popped up with dimensional adhesive.

That's it, just a pretty card for a wonderful friend!

Bye for now!

Brenda, this is a total beauty of a card and I am so lucky to add it to all the special things you have made for me :) It's so soft and gorgeous and I LOVE the pearly flourish and those little tiny flowers!! That paper could not be more perfect, but the way you finished it off definitely steals the show!
Thank you so much for your good wishes and mostly- thank you for being such an amazing friend :)

Definitely romantic! Love that pink oval with the birdie gently perched on top and the heart banner crisscrossing each other adds a great touch! Love the pearl flourishes!
