Love is a Wonderful Thing! Loves Rubberstamps Challenge

Good Tuesday Morning!

I am lucky enough to be chosen to remain on the Loves Rubberstamps Design Team for another term!!!  I can tell you I just love creating with these amazing ladies!  I do want to say goodbye to Olivia and Ceal and wish them the best with their future adventures.  Also, I want to welcome Lydia back to the team and a new welcome to Larelle-Susanne and Nikki.  It is going to be a great new term with lots of inspiration!

Ok, so this weeks challenge is everyone's favorite at Loves Rubberstamps…..
Drum Roll please……

Our fabulous sponsor this week is:

I started out this challenge using both Amelia and Oliver from The Greeting Farm - Lovey Dovey set.  Once I sat down to lay out my card, I didn't have enough room for both, so you will see Oliver at a later time.  Poor guy :(  The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto cryogen paper.  I used the Spellbinders - Large Oval to cut her out and used the Scalloped Oval for the background.  I used the My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Ruby as the background,  I just loved the design paper so I did not want to do much to it but add some ribbon, doily piece and some flowers.  By the way, did you see the pin on top of the flowers?  It is beautiful!  My aunt made this along with a few others for Christmas.  So I am putting it to good use. (I will get a better close up next time).
