For Lovers

Welcome to my blog! :) Thanks for stopping by--I really appreciate you taking a bit of time out of your life to look at my creations! :) I have a card for you tonight. Of course. ;D

Okay, first the challenges I'll be entering. Firstly, I was inspired by the colors over at the Play Date Cafe. I especially loved the roses on the teacups and the "for like ever" wall hanging.

Here is their inspiration photo~

I was also inspired by the Glitter Geeks challenge entitled "Song Title." The song I was inspired by is "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion.

Every time I hear a love song by Celine, I think of my fabulous husband and how much I love him. He makes me feel like his young bride every day of my life and I will ALWAYS think of him as my young and dashing groom. ;) He is such an inspiration to me and I love him so! Because he loves me, I know I can do anything! I will love him "for like ever"!!! Probably longer...

And now, before you puke because of the sappiness, here's my card~

Details~



I wanted to keep this card simple, but elegant. I used a clear glitter gel pen by Sakura to add all the shimmer and shine to the image and sentiment--I LOVE glitter and glam! I didn't like the rose dry embossed, so I stamped another one and colored it in, added the glitter gel pen, and then popped it up over the original image. The pearls were added as a reminder of the pearls I wore on our wedding day. :)

I hope you'll let me know what YOU think by leaving a comment! I also hope you're inspired to create something memorable today! Happy stamping! :)

What beautiful words you spoke about your husband, Mynnette! Did you let him read this post? I think you should!!

You and I are thinking on the same page, with the wedding-inspired card. I guess it was the words in the inspiration pic. ;)

I do love your embossed background, and how simple you kept your layout.

Thanks for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe!
