I think I finally got it right!

Good Sunday morning! I wanted to make a quick post before I head out on my walk. I'm hoping the rain will hold off. It's definitely sweatshirt weather too...brrr!
I have another "buckle strap" card for you today. I'm happy with the way this one turned out. The others I wasn't quite happy with...something was not quite right. I have found that the color of the strap makes a huge difference in the finished look of the card. I had planned to put a white strap on this one, but it looked all wrong. Who would think that small piece of cardstock could make such a difference?
The chicks are colored with Prismas and accented with a touch of Doodlebug glitter. I also added a sentiment; I was rummaging through my stamps the other day and found this one that I had forgotten I had. I was planning to make a few wedding cards one of these days, so this stamp was on my mind.
Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Hibiscus Burst, and Pure Black, Doodlebug DP
Embellies: Doodlebug Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, SU! Word Window Punch, EK Success 3D Dots
Thanks for stopping by today; enjoy your day!

This turned out great!!! I liked your other 2, also, but this one has a great little pop to it. And that sentiment looks awesome with the happy new couple ;)

Hope your weather starts cooperating with you

Too cute! I really like the reverse colors of the two DPs and the chicks are so sweet. Great simple and to-the-point sentiment, too!!
