Heartfelt Creations DT Alumni Hop

It's time again for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni monthly blog hop... We've chosen the last Tuesday of each month to share a project featuring Heartfelt Creations' stamps when we can, just for fun.  If you'd like a chance at winning a prize, be sure to leave a comment on every blog along the hop by Friday - there is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs for one random commenter!  I'm at the top of the hop list today, so if you'd like to view the entire hop, you're in the right place!


Today my husband and I are celebrating our 13th anniversary, so I wanted to tie that into my post somehow.. I decided to use the material from my bridesmaids' dresses as inspiration. Love the soft yellow and falling rose pattern.  I don't have any of the 'good' pictures overseas with me because we didn't want them to be ruined by humidity, but here's a scan of one of the ones I have here. Love these girls so much. :)


Once again it seems I've chosen a stamp that's retired... but I love this long rose border - it is just so versatile. I stamped it twice across the card, and watercolored using Shinhan Premium Watercolors. To add a little texture, I used some drywall mesh tape to mask in a few areas - loving this look lately. 


The pleated ribbon I used is from Really Reasonable Ribbon - love their products. I left my card blank, and I'll add a sentiment later.
