congrats Kendra & Aaron

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We have had 3 days of sunshine here in the 'Burgh. It's so wonderful to see the sun. Even though its still cold, it feels like spring.

So, let's get on to the card for today. I titled this post congrats Kendra & Aaron. The card I made is for the young couple we are mentoring.
Kendra's parents had an engagement party for them on Saturday evening. It was a festive time and the couple seemed so happy.
My husband & I were blessed to be a part of the celebration.
Our pastors were also there and prayed a prayer of blessing over them.
The wedding is in October. I am making the wedding invitations. Kendra has picked such beautiful fall colors for the invitations. They match her bridesmaids dresses perfectly. When I put the final draft together, I will post it on my blog.
This card is also for the mojo monday contest. I thought this layout worked well with the card I wanted to make.
I used one of my new toys. The flower daisy #2. I think it makes the most beautiful flowers.

I also used some new stampin-up designer paper. It's the "sending love specialty" paper. I like the glittery designs on this paper. I chose the pretty in pink paper and paired it with chocolate chip cardstock.

Stampin-up also came out with some new satin ribbon colors. I was in a ribbon share with my stamp club so I have several of the new colors. For this card, I used the pretty in pink.

I cut 3 of the glittery flowers from the designer paper and used them on the small chocolate rectangle piece. I stamped my sentiment on the other rectangle.

The pink pearls are from Michael's recollections collection. I used them on the ribbon and for the flower center.

Kendra loved the card. I gave it to her along with a teapot and teacups as an engagement gift. I found a really cute one at Pier One.

She is having a tea for her wedding shower. It will be so much fun. I am making the invitations for this also.

If anyone knows of a site to get a teapot template let me know. She wants the invite to be a teapot shape.

Well, its time to sign off from charmed life land for today. I have to get my card posted on the mojomonday blog before the deadline tonight!!
