Paper Makeup Stamps: GDT at Card Patterns

Not only was I truly honoured to be chosen as one of Card Patterns Super Six (with this card), but I was also picked to be a guest for challenge #83! Woo-hoo!  Thank you girls! :o)

The sketch for this week is a super one, and I didn't have any problems knowing exactly what I was going to make ... another wedding card, but this time a simple, modern CAS one:

I chose to use one of my all-time favourite Paper Makeup Stamps word art stamps to be the focal point instead of using an image - I love this sentiment for wedding or love-themed cards!

You can buy this stamp in three different formats from Paper Makeup Stamps...

~ 'The most important thing' rubber stamp (cling mounted) $4.00 ~

(If you live in the UK, you can also buy this bare rubber stamp from Quixotic Paperie)

It was a very simple card to make, but I still spent ages faffing around with exactly how many pearls to add and where, which shape of black flower to use, which spacer looked the best, and whether to go for a white, black, silver or gem brad!!  Yes, I am a ditherer, LOL!!!

Here are some more pics.....

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. OLLCB challenge #63 - Sentiment (use a sentiment as the main feature of your design)
2. Creative Craft Challenges - Black, White + 1 colour (my 'colour' is silver - the centre of my flower)
3. Allsorts Week 71 - Plain and Simple

Thanks again to the Card Patterns girls for having me as their guest this week, and thank YOU for popping by!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
