We're Gonna Get Married

Today is a special day - it's the day for the Classy Card Ladies DUEL. If you've been around my blog much, you know we usually post on the 15th, but this month we've made a date change - just for this month - due to some postal issues regarding the kits. We'll be back on track posting on the 15th again next month.

The Classy Card Ladies hosts this month are Carol (of the Diamonds) and Shelly (of the Pearls). They put their heads together in order to come up with a theme and then they sent kits to their respective group members. 

Apparently Carol and Shelly were feeling a bit musical. In Shelly's words - We felt like doing some singing, and we settled on the following tune:

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married
Gee, I really love you and we're gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel of love

Spring is here, the sky is blue, whoa oh oh
Birds all sing as if they knew
Today's the day we'll say, "I do"
And we'll never be lonely anymore because we're

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married
Gee, I really love you and we're gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel of love

Bells will ring, the sun will shine, whoa oh oh
I'll be his and he'll be mine
We'll love until the end of time
And we'll never be lonely anymore

Challenge Theme:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used in making my card other than what was in Shelly's kit was some SU Peek-a-Boo Peach CS and the following dies: Sizzix Square,  SU Stitched Shapes (Square), and Taylored Expressions Stitched Mini Slimline

Such a lot of sweetness going on here!!! I love how subtly you colored the bride and groom, and picked up her headband colors on the panel behind the image. Embellishments are perfect!

Very sweet card. Just enough color that adds to the card.
