Love and Marriage


I'm playing along with CASology, where the cue word is AND.  The challenge is being sponsored this week by STAMPlorations, and as I'm on the STAMPlorations design team, I thought I'd use my STAMPlorations stamps.


I drew a pencil circle on the card, using the inside of a tape roll as a guide, then stamped a pentagon stamp from the Patchwork Frenzy: Graphic Pentagons around the outside of the circle using Tattered Rose Distress ink, keeping the same point facing out.  I don't normally practice on scrap paper, I just dive straight in, but I've got to admit to having a couple of trial runs with this one to make sure I didn't end up with a half-pentagon at the end.  The couple and the sentiment are from Vignette: Ever After.

I'm also playing at Shopping Our Stash where the challenge is Love Me Tender (all sing along now).


I'm playing at One Layer Simplicity Challenge where the theme is "Can You Repeat That",

And at Simon Says Monday Challenge where the theme is Love Notes.
