Mr and Mrs Owl

The bride wore pearl-encrusted vintage ivory satin ... the groom resplendent in waistcoat and top hat.

I don't know why, but yesterday morning when I awoke almost the first thing that came into my mind was a design for a bride and groom owl. I hadn't been thinking of weddings or owls and neither of those appeared in my dreams, so why that particular thought should just pop into my brain I am not sure! But "ours is not to question why" as they say, so later on after dinner I sat down to create the card I had imagined.

I had soooo much fun! Let me introduce you to the newlyweds:

Seriously, how adorable are these two?

The top hat and veil were both made using the "vest" part of the owl punch and I also used the scallop oval punch for the top part of the veil. The sentiment comes from the Word Play set. Wish I knew someone who was getting married - I'd love to see their faces when they received this!

Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day.
