This is my first attempt at a paint can. I should have gotten a better picture of it from the side to see the stamping which i watercolored. Under the poem, there is butterflies stamped in versamark and then pearl ex. This is part one of the wedding present. See other pictures for part 2 and part 3.
Wedding Day Poem
Today you became husband & wife,
To have & to love for the rest of your life.
The first year of marriage will seem quite busy,
Ups & downs that will make you so dizzy.
So on a piece of paper you will write,
A memory, a date that is oh, so bright.
Don't forget to record the dark ones too,
They help you to remember what not to do.
Write them all down so you won't forget,
The very reasons you both chose to commit.
Then on your first Anniversary Night,
Open this can by some candlelight.
Keep all the good times, throw away the bad,
Remember the joy of the year you just had.
Hopefully inside you will find much more,
Than just slips of paper, but memories to adore.
Here's hoping everything goes your way,
Best wishes to you both on your Wedding Day!
