Barn-Themed Wedding Card

It's been a looooong time since I've made a card, let alone play along with Heart 2 Heart (colouring challenge this week) and Mojo Monday.  It felt great to play with my stamps again - and for this card, I used a CTMH set for the 1st time, which makes it also qualify for the NBUS challenge!

I created this wedding card for a family member, whose wedding is a couple of weeks away.  I'm pretty excited, as I've never been to a barn wedding before, and I've also been asked to make some barn-themed cookies (I'll try to post some pics-stay tuned)!

I loved colouring the cute birds included in this set (and how appropriate for a barn theme)!  I added a rustic feel by using kraft cardstock embossed with woodgrain, some faux stitching, and combined that with the elegant feel of the shimmered grey cs, shimmered vellum, and sequins.
