A Post... Finally.

So, I had every intention of posting this two days ago. And then Blogger went spastic. And then, when Blogger finally quit spazzing, I was gone all day visiting the University of Kentucky with Megan. So now I'm home, and I'm finally posting. :)

I used stamps from JustRite's Friendship Blooms Cling Set, stamping them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and inking the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I cut and embossed the frame and sentiment with Labels Eighteen and Classic Circle Nestabilities. The paper is from The Thrift Shop by October Afternoon. I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug Fleur de Lis folder, and I embellished with Black Rhinestones, Natural Burlap String, and a Peridot Love Letter Rose. I took off the bottom two labels of the rose to make it a bit smaller so it didn't overwhelm the sentiment.

Tip: Don't be afraid to play around with your embellishments to make them more suitable for your project. Color them, cut them, change their shape -- make them work for you! :)

After a few days of heat and sunshine, the rain is back. Looks like soggy soccer games today! Thanks for visiting today -- have a great day!
