Made for Each Other Redux

Good Morning Everyone!

Today over at Card-a-Day, we are celebrating weddings.  I really struggled with my card today.  Have you ever had an idea in your head and then for whatever reason you can't make it happen??  Well that was me!  I just couldn't figure out how to finish this card -- I even asked my husband for help!  Anyway, this is what I ended up with:

I think it ended up okay -- not quite what I had in mind but ...

I used our For Always paper along with our Artiste and Art Philosophy Cricut cartridges with a little bit of Tags, Bags, Boxes and More thrown in.  It's an A2 size card measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

The ovals were cut using the Art Philosophy:  page 42, C2, < Oval3 > cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2".

The cameo silhouettes were cut using the Artiste:  page 42, Shift, Accent 2, < W > cut at 2 1/2" and page 42, Shift, Accent 3, < W > cut at 2 1/2".

The sentiment comes from the stamp set in our Avonlea Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit and was stamped with Slate ink.
