Love Birds

Hi! This week has really flown by in such a good way....it's been productive! I was able to make this card last night:

What do you think of when it comes to a black and white card? I always think of its classic beauty....it's timeless....ageless....and you know what....everyone (especially the ladies) looks good in black....what is the traditional 'myth' of black and white? Is it that it makes you slimmer when you wear the colors...it makes you feel more refined....regal...something like that?

I always imagine black and white for weddings too - lovely colors for a beautiful bride.......oh, and what about the symbol of some our favorite movie stars....how about classic Audrey Hepburn...remember that look on her?! Gorgeous!

I had not initially decided to make this a wedding card until I started just putting elements together...funny how you're really not sure how a card will turn out until you play with it for a bit.

Hope you enjoy and I'm taking off for the rest of the day to enjoy with family....have a great start to your weekend!
