A Fairytale

I didn't think I was going to be able to post today. My mind has been going in so many different directions today and when I tried to stamp I just couldn't concentrate, so I starting doing my blog reading. When I visited Lauren's blog, it was JUST what I needed today. Lauren's Saturday Sketch was clean and simple. . .emphasis on the simple. The sketch called for an image in the corner and a sentiment in the middle. She said we could add a layer if we wanted, but she'd prefer we keep it a single layer card. I've been dying to use these stamps and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. I stamped the bride in VersaMagic Wheat. The sentiment is in Basic Black except for the word "love" which is also in wheat. The flower is an ivory confetti flower from Michael's. . .the ones that Lauren made us ALL go out and buy! LOL Thanks, Lauren, for clearing my head and keeping it simple! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- She's All That, Full of Life (SU); Ink- Wheat (VersaMagic), Basic Black (SU); Paper- Whisper White; Accessories- confetti flower, pearl brad
