Addicted To Stamps - Challenge #126

Hi everyone,
Before I begin, I would like to say Happy Hanukkah to everyone who is celebrating the Festival of Lights tonight!

This week's challenge theme at Addicted to Stamps and More  is 'Anything goes with an optional twist' ... "Love"! Why love? Well, because our Teamie Marina is getting married and we are taking this opportunity to wish her (and her soon to be hubby, Max) a lifetime of love and happiness!

Here is my card:



In person, it's easy to see the embossed sentiment, but on screen it's a bit more difficult, so here is a close-up:


 I used Mama Elephant Water Blooms and Bountiful Blessings stamp sets with several Hero Arts Shadow Inks.

Our sponsor for this challenge is QKR Stampede, and the winner will receive 3 Digital Images!  This is our last challenge for 2014, so I hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out my design team mates' beautiful work HERE and join us in the challenge!


Best wishes to you, Marina! Thanks to all for stopping by ~

Wonderful design Barb, I am thinking it was a lot of masking to create this collection of flowers, so wish I had the patience to create such a stunning bouquet x
