Pion Design - Happily Ever After

Hello Everyone!

It has been soooo hot here for the last few days, so I decided to stay indoors and make a romantic wedding card for my stash. I can't resist the soft and delicate designs of the Vintage Wedding collection from Pion Design, and you can never have too many wedding cards at the ready! This could also work for an Anniversary I should think.






Vintage Wedding - Rose PD5903
Vintage Wedding - Wedding Bells PD5904

Vintage Wedding - Borders PD5910




The music notes die is Memory Box, the doily is Prima, the leaves are Cheery Lynn. The frame is made with air-dry clay and a custom mould, and the dove mold is ModPodge. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the stick pins are hand made. Everything else is from my stash.







UPDATE:
My card won awards in the following wonderful challenges:

    

  

***
Since my project today is about LOVE - I thought I would collect a few photos to show you about LOVE as well. First up is a little romance story from my bird watching window. Meet Mr & Mrs Blue Jay.

HE SAW HER ACROSS A CROWDED BRANCH


THEY MADE EYE CONTACT - AND HER EYES SAID "YES"


SOME SMALL TALK TO BREAK THE ICE - BUT IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT


HE LEANED IN FOR A KISS - SHE ACCEPTED


TRUE LOVE AT LAST


AND NOW - WHAT DOES LOVE MEAN??
LOVE IS - being able to enjoy a moment of relaxation without the need to speak...


LOVE IS - looking together in the same direction...


LOVE IS - having someone to lean on when you're tired or scared...


LOVE IS - putting the needs of someone else ahead of your own...


LOVE IS - always having someone to whisper a secret to...


LOVE IS - not just moving in the same direction, but travelling at the same pace...


LOVE IS - unconditional and unlimited...


LOVE IS - feeling comfortable enough to let your hair down and play a little...


LOVE IS - knowing you are safe, even when you are most vulnerable...
LOVE IS - putting yourself between danger and the one you love...


TAKE A SECOND AND LOOK AT THIS LAST PHOTO AGAIN!!!
BEST SQUIRREL PICTURE EVER!!

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.

  38. A delightful card Pamellia with wonderful layers and elements as always. I love collecting embellishment ideas and those bead wired butterflies are gorgeous I've never 'seen' them before (strange how we pick up on the little things sometimes). Love your filmstrip of love photos and words, very cleverly put together and the two squirrels snuggled up together is perfect to finish the post with. Please send some warmth over here it's been so chilly and damp this week. Have a great weekend xxx

  53. Oh Pamellia, this entire post has my heart aflutter! What a gorgeous journey of love you just took us on. :o) Your card is the epitome of romance... soft, sweet, and divine. The framed image is vintage perfection and every detail throughout your masterpiece is gorgeous. The pearly musical score with the doves is stunning. How unique and lovely are your butterflies! The stick pins add even more elegance and I remain stunned at your ethereal use of Pion papers and layering. Your style leaves me speechless and I struggle to portray the happiness your art brings me. Beautiful as ever, my friend!

    And your photos! Oh my, each animal friend has nestled their way into my heart! You capture animals as only you can, Pamellia. Your heart is so special. :o) Have a beautiful day, my lovely friend!

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen

  60. Hi Pamellia
    Am I seriously behind or have you been making too many cards lol?
    Forgive my tardiness but I'm still not 100%.
    Gorgeous floaty loveliness. I mean floaty in a dreamy way.
    I'm guessing you don't see the gnu type animals and monkeys from your window or you're a bit more out in the sticks than I thought you were lol!
