LOVE CHALLENGE


Daring Cardmakers challenge this week was to "put some LOVE into your cards this week. Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement or simply to say "I love You""

So I dusted off my Michael's $ stamp and got to work. I love the simple cards that just have a stamp in the middle with some ribbon, but whenever I try it for some reason it does not come out simple and elegant. So I went with this one. I chalked the edges with a light gray to soften it then had to put two red heart brads on it so that is could then pop. I just noticed that it looks crooked in the picture, but really its not, hope you like it, now I have to find a wedding to get invited to, maybe I will just crash one, heck I have the card.

Hi Flossie! Thanks for the comment on my blog...it's nice to "meet you." I love your profile and applaud you for going hi-tech, as an "old dog" (your words, not mine). I love using the Michael's $1 stamps too. This turned out really cute.
