My Nephew's Wedding

Good morning! It's a beautiful Friday morning because I get to sleep in a bit before we head out of town to my nephew's wedding in Nelson, BC. Mike was the first grandchild in my family and the first to head down the aisle tomorrow. I was 16 when he was born :) My whole family will be there including my son and his girlfriend :) Today's card is the one I made for my sister (mother of the groom) to give to the happy couple. I gave her a set of cards in January for her birthday and on a blank piece of cardstock I wrote "A card for Mike's wedding." The wedding colours are purple, brown, and burnt orange. I love this sentiment. It's the one I put on my dh's Valentine card this year; "Paradise is always where love dwells." I will post my card tomorrow ;) Have a fabulous Friday to everyone and a fantastic long weekend to my fellow Canadians!

Lovely job on this card, Maureen. Love the embossed bird in the heart. Lovely embossed BG panel and sheer ribbon. I'm sure it will be loved. Have a great time at the wedding and share some pics with us when you get back. Happy Thanksgiving to you too :D
