happily ever after...

"Find me here, speak to me
I want to feel You, I need to hear You
You are the light that's leading me
To the place where I find peace again
You are the strength that keeps me walking
You are the hope that keeps me trusting
You are the light to my soul
You are my purpose, You're everything
You calm the storms, and You give me rest
You hold me in Your hands, You won't let me fall
You steal my heart, and You take my breath away
Would You take me in, take me deeper now
How can I stand here with You and not be moved by You?
Would You tell me, how could it be any better than this?
'Cause You're all I want, You're all I need
You're everything, everything
You're all I want, You're all I need
You're everything, everything" -Lifehouse

How I love that song.. so romantic.. poignant.. very much a love song. It was a song I listened to over and over when my guy and I started going out. It speaks volumes..it's everything I feel when I look at him. How blessed I am to have him.
A couple of good friends of ours are getting married. This card is for them. I'm sure they would relate to the song. They are meant for each other; very compatible.. so cute together. I am so happy for them..I know they will have a wonderful life together. They can live their happily ever after.
I decided to make a glassine bag since I didn't have any on hand.. decorated with a die cut, lightly stamped butterfly, complete with a handmade rosette.  Lots of Basic Grey goodies..tried to capture the 3d effect of it all. Little personalized embellishments all over the place. I really had fun making this card for them. And, it fits with a couple challenges this week too! Over at The Shabby Tea Room, they have a gorgeous inspiration picture...challenge is to use butterflies.. I made this card before knowing the challenge. Funny how it fits.
Over at Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog this weeks challenge is "here comes the bride." I believe it is to do with weddings.. and this card fits just so. I'm off to pop on to the sites and post my creation.
Thanks for the visit,
Night all
