Thoughts & Prayers


If you get a chance this weekend, head on over to Splitcoast for the Virtual Stamping Night. The theme is Las Vegas and the challenges are a lot of fun. My card shown here is to use as much gold as possible. I embossed the Bella Toile background in gold on metallic gold and Whisper White cardstocks. Gold embossed sentiment and image from Thoughts & Prayers set in gold and added mini pearls.













My sweet husband took me to Las Vegas for our 10 year anniversary and we were lucky enough to see this Cirque du Soleil production of Love. It was the most amazing, incredible thing I have ever seen.
My card is based on the cd cover and the song All You Need Is Love. When I think of Vegas I think of weddings so I used the silhouette stamp from Artful INKables. Other stamps used were Stitched Exotics, Polka Dots & Petals, Groovy by Close To My Heart.
If you can't get to Vegas to see this, at least get the cd, it is mixed so beautifully you will absolutely love it!!
