Now and Forever

Hello there!
Happy Tuesday...hope you had a great weekend!

Thank you for your well wishes for the weekend...my husband and I had a great time!!! We were in Albany for a gun and knife show...my hubby loves that stuff. We haven't gone on any sought of vacation alone in five years. A long weekend alone together was awesome! The food was great too!

I have a card I created utilizing a few challenges...


I followed the sketch from Seize the Sketch...
 
and a love story theme from City Crafter Challenge blog...


I used cardstock and the stamp set from Papertrey Ink, Grand Ampersand. The pattern papers are from Recollections, Valentine. The hearts were cut using Spellbinders dies. The wood veneer is from Prima.

The black ink is Hero Arts. The sequins are from Neat & Tangled Stamps. The enamel dots are Recollections.

I am also entering this card into The Card Concept...adding texture, wood. My style of choice is



2. Clean and Layered

Definition:
  • clean lines
  • lots of layers
  • designer papers/embossing
  • embellishments/accents
  • clean and fresh looking
  • some coloured images at times
  • white space 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
