Dynamic Duos Challenge #56

Hey everyone! How's your weekend going so far? It's really hot here, so just one more reason to stay in and play in my craft room. I was already planning to be in there to prep for a couple of workshops, so I thought I'd create something for the new challenge over at Dynamic Duos. The challenge for this week is to use the colors Soft Suede and Blushing Bride. I wasn't a big fan of Blushing Bride when it was an In Color in 2010, but I'm over it. lol It looks really good with Soft Suede.

I used a stamp set from Sale-a-bration that I absolutely love! I really wish it was in the new catalog. It's called Feeling Sentimental and has the cutest old fashioned stamps in it. You just have to distress your project when using these stamps! I distressed the embossed mat with ink and scissors on the sentiment mats. The ribbon is actually white and I dyed it with the Blushing Bride ink pad.

Well, hope you have a great evening, and as always, thank you for stopping by.
