SCRSC96B - Love Song Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today I have my Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge 96 card to share. You have until Sunday 27 January 2013 @ 9 PM PST to play along with our challenge which is a Love Song Challenge:

As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew immediately which love song I would pick! I have  tonnes of favourite love songs (I could spend all day listing them!), but this one is special. It holds the most meaning and the biggest place in my heart. It's the very first song that my hubby sang to me ... down the telephone line ... thousands of miles apart ... him in NZ and me in the UK ... and it has been "our" song ever since ...

"I'll Be" by Edwin McCain:

I was going to use Cheerleading Emily for my card because of the lyric: "I'll be the greatest fan of your life". But as I wanted the card to be more romantic and 'whole-song' inspired, I chose Mr. & Mrs. instead. I followed Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 176 for my layout:

SCRS Mr. & Mrs. rubber stamp
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Basic Grey 'Plumeria' 6x6 paper pad
Bazzill Kraft cardstock
Natural Kraft Button Twine, WOC flower
Versamagic Eggplant chalk ink
Spellbinders Circles & Scalloped Circles dies

I used my 'new' Basic Grey Plumeria pad for this card. And talking about Basic Grey, have you seen their newest lines? I can't wait to get my hands on Lucille and Mint Julep. Mint Julep was revealed at Winter CHA 2013 so unfortunately it won't be shipping until April ... arghhh, such a long time to wait, lol!

Do visit the rest of Challenge Team B to see what gorgeousness they have created for your inspiration this week and then hop along to the SCRS blog to join in the challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
