As Long as You Live

A lovely young lady just got engaged.  She is fun, spunky, and always on trend...all of which is captured in this week's Color My Heart challenge.

I used Altenew's "Vintage Roses" in Thistle and leaves in Lagoon over Pear. The background was made with sponge daubers using Crystal Blue, Lagoon, and Pear.  To really make the sentiment from CTMH's "Wavy Blooms" pop, I used my MISTI tool and stamped it four times in Lagoon.

I ran my background panel through MFT's stitched dies and backed it with Thistle cardstock. Coordinating Thistle Thick Twine finished it off.

Since it's always important to play nice in blogland, here's the card I used as my inspiration for this one.

Love how this turned out.  Love the sentiment for an engaged couple. Love celebrating such a happy moment.

Until next time,


  1. Becca, this is beautiful, and thank you for linking back to my card, I feel honored to be an inspiration. You have done a great job with the card, I love these roses. The framed panel is a great idea, as it matches to the colors you chose for the roses. Fantastic card!

    1. Thanks Rahmat! I love that we can take inspiration from someone else and make it into our own. It's one of my favorite things about stamping! :)
