Love and Laughter for FreshlyMadeSketches#83

I've been playing with the stamp set Love and Laughter, to see if I can use the dress for other events. To do that, the words relating to marriage need to be covered over.
Intending to enter a card this week for Freshly Made Sketches,
I have tried to stick fairly closely to the placement suggested by Allisa for this card. With no greeting on for the moment, it could be for a graduation, debutante, 18th or 21st birthday.

I used Not Quite Navy ink and Shimmery White and Night of Navy  card with some silver Glimmer Paper. One tiny flower was punched from Cherry Cobbler card and some retired Cherry Cobbler Tulle gathered beautifully behind a Designer Builder Brad, for the job of hiding "Bride and Groom" and other wedding-type words.

Then just for fun, I kept on playing with this stamp set and Memorable Moments for the greeting to make an 18th birthday card in Shimmery white, basic Black and Cherry Cobbler and decorated up with Basic jewel rhinestones. I dry embossed the Basic Black with the Elegant Lines folder, which will retire at the end of the current catalogue. Unfortunately it is very difficult to see in my photograph but it does look extremely elegant!!!

It is a lovely sunny autumn day here in Melbourne, so I intend to spend some time in my garden. Thanks for visiting my blog, please leave a comment to let me know you've been here :-)
Happy stamping
