The Kissing Booth…

I guess you could say I’ve been busy lately.  I hope that I will be able to post a few more cards this week.  At least that’s the plan.  This is the first of several anniversary cards that I need to do this month.  I’m hardly ever on time with them, but I try.

This cute couple are by The Paper Shelter.  They have so many lovely images.  I won a couple, and then of course I had to go purchase a few more.  This works really well for an anniversary card; for a friend or for your mate. 

I don’t really enjoy doing all white cards, but there was a challenge I wanted  to enter this week, so I decided to give it a go again.  I’m not completely pleased with the way it turned out, because I like to have several layers of matting and paper. All of the dies on the page are by Cheery Lynn Designs.  The one border punch is by MS.  I used Creative Inspirations Paint on the “Sweet William” flower die and then put clear gems in the center.  The flower’s base is the center cut-out from the “Scandinavian Hearts” which, along with the leaf swirl I’ve glittered; I also added the laurel leaves in white.

I used a Cricut embossing folder with hearts for the backing of the couple.  I topped the corners with Candy Buttons.  The ribbon I used for my bow (using Bow-Easy), is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts.  And finally the stamps are from Stamping Scrapping.

I’m entering this card in the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter – celebration
Divas By Design – anything
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge – recipe: glitter, embossing, green and blue
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge – sketch
Digi Doodle Shop Challenges – nature (they’re outside)

Really beautiful card, I do relate to the lack of enthusiasm with white on white, but you pulled this off beautifully. Love the die combination, and the gorgeous paint... thank you for taking part in the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge!

Very pretty DJ! I always get very intimidated with white on white, but would like to be brave like you and try one some time! They always look so elegant! I love all the pretty details you put on this one! All the layers add so much dimension. The bow & flower make it all pop!
