Mr & Mrs

Today is the 19th and yesterday was the due date for a Mystery Swap on SCS. This is my card for that swap.  It is a group of us who do a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess. This swap was created by Forest Ranger—Jeanette--back in 2010 and we are now in our 57th round!  Carol is our hostess this month and sent everyone this great image from Colorado Craft Company-3C-called Happy Forevering. She will swap out the cards and send everyone the next image, which Terry picked out! We then get to do it all again, for round #59, in May!   

I think the wedding image is so pretty and I colored with with my water brush and Stampin' Up inks for a softer, water colored look.  I then took two Memory Box Scalloped Stitched Rectangle dies and cut a frame to go over the image.  The background is a piece of vellum from the Stampin' Up Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack.

Here is the inside of my card, using a stamp from the Essential Sentiments from A*Muse:

I hope Carol and all of the mystery swappers like my card.  If you check my sidebar on the left, you might see some other swappers who have posted their cards yesterday, today or in the next few days.
