Bride and Groom Owl in a Love Nest- CCCCact38

Stacey has some bright colors this week for the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 38! They are Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry. I needed to make make my sister and her future husband a wedding card and I knew it wasn't going to be a traditional wedding card, because they are not too traditional, so I thought these color may work, and they did!

Here is what I came up with, a bride and a groom owl sitting in their love nest. I had a lot of fun putting this card together that uses the new Two-Step Owl Extra-Large punch. The love nest is made using the Heart to Heart Extra-Large punch and Certainly Celery card stock that was sponged around the edges.

I punched out the owls using the appropriate card stocks for this weeks colors and sponged around the edges of all the pieces. Then I mis-matched the owls colors and put them together. I added a few of the new Pearls from Stampin' Up! to the bride owl's head and a little Vellum Veil. The groom owl got a Rich Razzleberry bow tie.

The Very Vanilla card base was sent through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder to give it some texture and some "fancy wedding feel". The sentiments come from the stamp set Fundamental Phrases and are stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

Thanks for looking!
and
Congratulations Stacy and Nick!
