Happy Anniversary Matt & Katie

Today I made a very quick card for my son Matt and his wife Katie's 2nd wedding anniversary.  I had it in my head that I wanted to use BB: Newsprint and Love Birds for this card.  I went through two prototypes and finally settled on this as my final card:
I ended up using the title from BB:Newsprint and the rest of the newsprint is a CAC Impression Obsession stamp called Newsprint.  It covered the entire rest of the cardbase all at once.  Works perfectly with the PTI set too.  I stamped the birdcage in dark chocolate ink and the birds in Hawaiian Shores, cut it out and suspended it from a little swag of pure poppy bakers twine.  The happily ever after sentiment is from Botanical Silhouettes and I added just a few of the sweet red hearts from Love Birds for an extra pop of red.  Two years ago we were running around like crazy getting ready for their wedding and it is so nice to see how far both Matt and Katie have come individually and as a couple.  They are really very happy and as a mother, that is the most wonderful thing to see!

Oh my goodness! This is my kind of card! It is nearly as fabulous as you dearest Cathy. Love the newsprint stamp combo paired with the love birds. It works a treat! but I am especially moved by momma bear's great big old heart (yours). you really do inspire me. Thanks so much for that hugs.

This is adorable! I love the sweet little bird cage, and the newsprint is a fab background.
