LeAnne at the Paper Players has a super fun challenge for everyone this week to add music to their project or create something inspired by your favorite song. Anne Marie was having a busy week, so I have the pleasure of stamping in her place this week. For my card, I decided to use one of my favorite songs, which was also our wedding song 7 years ago, A Moment Like This by Kelly Clarkson.
For my card, I used Elements of Style, a stamp set that I have not been a fan of in the past. I thought the sentiment really worked for my idea, so I borrowed it from a friend and gave it a shot. I did have fun coloring it in with my blender pens, so I can say that I like it more now than I did before. :) I'm not sure how well you can see the butterfly, but it is gorgeous in real life. It adds a bit of dimension and interest to the image panel. Our wedding colors were plum and silver, but seeing as how I don't yet own those, I went with a mix of purples and white. I wanted a very clean, somewhat simple card that really said "Us".
Stamps: Elements of Style
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, Whisper White
Tools/Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Beautiful Butterflies die, basic pearls, blender pens
Here we are back on March 13, 2004. We had no idea how much our lives would change or that each "moment" might not always be a happy one. In spite of those bad moments, we've stuck together and survived the loss of my mother-in-law, my father-in-law, and our only child. I feel very loved each and every day and I could never find someone who is as perfect for me as my dear Jason. His support and kindness are never ending and I love him with all my heart and soul.
I hope you enjoyed my card and didn't laugh too much at my old picture. I'd love for you to play along with us this week!
