We've Only Just Begun

When I saw the March kit from Artful Delight, I just had to have it! It was full of awesome papers and embellies. The Be Happy papers from My Mind's Eye and the birdcage made me want to scrap this photo I took at my sister's wedding. (I was her wedding photographer and matron of honor!)  I used the March sketch from Artful Delight as well and this is what I came up with...
I made the roses with the cream colored cardstock from the February kit, using a pale pink Copic marker to color the inside bud. I used the same Copic marker to color the alphas in the kit. The birdcage was finished with a white crackle paint and then inked on the edges. The bird was finished using a pewter crackle paint.
I am so glad that my sister found someone who makes her happy after years of struggling as a single Mom. And my Brother-in-law is a colorful addition to the family. I am thinking I should have this framed for their upcoming 15th anniversary.
If you are interested in making these roses, I have a tutorial on my blog here, Rose Tutorial.
Let me know what you think. I love reading your comments!
