Hello Hello! It's MojoMonday time, my friends and I just had to take some time off from my time off to make this card. The good news is I won't be prattling on as I usually do. Today you'll see me post and scoot. Once again I've opted for a union between the MojoMonday sketch #253 and "Soft Neutrals" from The Shabby Tea Room #126. Also taking this to TopTip Tuesday #82 "Focus on Ribbon".

Here's what I've come up with for a newly wed couple who have just purchased a house. Here's to many many years of joy and happiness in their new home.

Just 2 little bits of patterned papers from Wild Rose Studio "Wedding Bells". 

I embossed the background with D'Vine Swirls (Cuttlebug) and swiped it with some distress inks to bring out the design. 

 The image is from HOTP's "Sweet Tweets" set and the sentiment is  from WMS "Fancy Phrases". I had a go at the "out of the box" cutting technique for the image with the branch and leaves sticking out on both ends. And then I went crazy with the pearls!

A few more elements from the photo inspiration: Some sheer ribbon and bow in pale blue and the scatter cushion finds it way in as that square Fleur de Lis die-cut.  

Here's the inside: I couldn't resist throwing in that cute little bird-house from the Sweet Tweets set.
