Shadowbox Layout - 10th Wedding Anniversary!

Thanks for stopping by.  I created this layout for my 10 year anniversary that is coming up May 13th.  I love the way it came out.  I used George and Sweethearts to create the flowers, Graphic 45 Paper (and an original wedding invitation), PTI cardstock, glimmer mist and some grunge.  I scanned and then edited the photo to change it to gray tone.

I am very new to this whole blog world, so please excuse the mess while I get it set up!

My Pink Stamper Challenge ~ Black, Pink and Green!

I created this card and purse for Robyn's challenge.  I started out in one direction and before I knew it, headed completely in a different direction!  Once I got out my distress inks, I decided to go vintage.  I used the Forever Young cartridge for both the purse and the flowers.  Using the flower cut #8, I cut out a bunch of them in sizes between 1.5 and 2.5.  I then used Distress inks (Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar and Vintage Photo) to change up the plain white cardstock they had been cut from.  After that, I sprayed them with glimmer mist and scrunched them up...stacked them up and attached a little black brad to hold it all together.  More glimmer mist (marshmallow), scrunching and then dried with my heat gun.  The stamp is from Inkadinkadoo and I used vintage photo for the "thank you".  All in all I am pleased with how it turned out!  Thanks for looking ~
