Animal Companions

Good morning again.  This fortnight brings a fantastic new challenge and sponsor for The Corrosive Challenge Blog.  We are lucky to have be able work with images created by Teri at Delicious Doodles for the month of September.  The theme of our challenge this time around is "Animal Companions", so your creation must include an image that features an animal.  Teri has lots of fabulous images with animals, from ferocious to precious.  Be sure to check out her shop. 
My Aunt had asked me to make a wedding card for my cousin's wedding, so when I saw Lovey-Dovey Silhouette I knew it was just perfect.  I had recently been in Newburyport with my Aunt, and there was a store that sold a lot of beautiful and unique cards, and one of them had a sentiment that we both loved so I "borrowed" it for my card.  The front says:  "And the song from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend."  The inside says "As your song wishes to you on your wedding day."  I just thought this was such a sweet saying.  Here is a little different view:
This is much simpler than I am used to making, but I do like how it came out.  I simply cut the image out using a Lacy Circles Spellbinder, then sponged a little blue ink on the edges, and popped it up with foam dots.  I just winged the layout for a change, and made sure to incorporate all the different elements I had in mind.

Papers:  G.C.D. Studios - Sophisticated Frost paper stack, purchased at Big Lots
Embellies:  The Paper Company - Filigree Accents, Martha Stewart - Doily Lace Fabric brads.  Hemptique "Metallic Classic" Crafter's Cord.  (Both the brads and hemp twine I found at TJ Maxx for a great price.  I am pretty excited to know they carry some card making supplies now, I love me some shopping, and TJ's is one of my favorite places to shop.)

That's all for now.  I do hope you will play along with us at The Corrosive Challenge Blog for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Delicious Doodles.  Looking forward to seeing lots of interesting creature creations!

Your card is so beautiful and so is the sentiment. I think you did a beautiful job on this card. Love the bling in the corners.
