Hello everyone
Thank you for popping by I very much appreciate it and Hello to Amy from MAWTT for joining the dance.
Thank you Patricia for the web details for wool etc

This is my offering the this weeks MAWTT See here The theme for this week is "Song Lyrics" and I chose "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and Garfunkel. I made this card for a couple's engagement. They are in their 50's. I was asked to make a card with a country theme. I thought this image would apply and as the lyrics suggest - their good news overcomes what life may have dished them over the years.
 I faded the image using Serif and cut two extra at full resolution. I decoupaged them over the top of the transparent one.

8x8 card blank
Serif tools and text
Spellbinders D-Lite Vines of Passion
Spellbinders Itty Bitty Blossom

Hope everyone is well and if you're in pain that it's easing
See you Saturday
