Morehead Marriage






Hello and Welcome to Another Weekly Challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps

This week is another easy peasy, Anything Goes!  I love this one and I am so glad it's a once a month occurrence.  I do like a good challenge, but once a month I look forward to delving into my own creative juices.  Have you seen the Morehead collection over at Loves Rubberstamps?  OMGosh you are going to freak out, these are the cutest images.  I love their big heads and the cute expressions on their faces.  Adorable.  My goodies came in the mail yesterday and Morehead Marriage was one of the things I had ordered.  Of course I inked them up in Memento Black Ink.  How timely that I was just notified the day before yesterday that one of my favorite peeps at the LSS is getting married and having a shower tonight.  So I whipped up this card this morning.  I wish the Spica glitter showed up in my picture, but it didn't.  Her veil, and the lace and the ribbon all have a slight shimmer to them. 

I cut the half circle with my MFT's circle dies and used a Royal mini rose die-namic and die-namic Royal leaves.  My flower was made from a scrap I  had left over from the Love Story collection.  The background paper is from Fancy Pants Design, called Country Boutique.  I love this paper!  I am so excited that Laura got the McGill paper blossom tool kit in the store!!!  It's so great and easy to use.  I used the same technique I learned on the video tutorial from Donna Salazar - check it out. Of course most people find it easier to use a roller, than to roll by hand.  Either way, this technique works so well with these mini rose die-namics.  And I love my Best Glue Ever for holding these flowers in place and glued down.  I found this great sketch from The Sweet Shop.  I'm too late to enter, but loved it enough to use it.
