Edited to Add: Okay, everyone was soooo sweet not to mention that the banners were “hanging” the wrong way!! LOL  Maybe it was windy!! LOL  Or maybe I just had too many rainbows on the brain…anyways, I have corrected the problem!!  I can’t believe it took me looking at my post hours later to realize this!! hehe  I’ve left the original for comparison

Good morning!! Well yesterday was a very productive day in the studio :)  I was able to combine a challenge with a commissioned card.  I have fortunately joined a staff who loves handmade cards and are keeping me busy with requests :)  So this one is for an upcoming wedding in April.  I was given free reign with sentiment and colours.  I’m using this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge with its sweet little banners.  I knew I wanted the word “L-O-V-E” on the banners, but my alphabet stamps were not fancy enough…soooooooo, I cut apart the word LOVE from the Fancy Phrases stamp “with Love.”  Yes, I took apart a beautiful stamp!!  I tried taping over letters and was getting ink everywhere, so I cut it!  I’ve actually done this a few times before and the beauty of clear stamps is that they fit back together so well.  When I go to use “with Love” again, it will be fine :)  And don’t you think those letters are perfect for that banner?  I also used glitter cardstock for the leaves…it looked better than green leaves and a little more festive :)  I hope your first days of Spring are going well…thanks for stopping by and spending a few minutes with me :)  Hugs,

Oh my gosh, Maureen... this is a work of art ~ it should be framed! I love your little banner and the pretty flowers and the distressing. It always looks so nice when you add bling to the sentiment. I need to try this!

Glad to hear you have a staff that loves cards :) Great use of the WMS. You aced the banner - don't know if I'd be brave enough to cut up a stamp or not, though LOL! Love the outline on the nestie. I'm sure your customer and the couple will love the card :)

This is so beautiful and bravo on cutting up your stamp! I've done it a couple of times and always feel terrible until I see how much I like it the new way! :) Love it!
