Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Take A Leap Into The Unknown


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Recycle Style Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is,


As today is Leap Day we are leaping into the unknown! You choose to use a new technique, or it can also mean a new way of life, getting engaged, married, having a baby, new job, the possibilities are endless!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


My nephew will soon be getting married to his beautiful fiancee and this is the card I made for them.

 Our lovely teamie, Cheiron, made this gorgeous card a while ago and I CASE'd it :-) 
thanks Cheiron xx 

I created a background by inking white card with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, I then used some White Embossing Paste, a Falling Hearts Stencil and a sprinkling of Prisma Glitter to add to the romance.
 I  inked a little piece of acetate with Alcohol Inks to make the stained glass windows in the Church. I colored the Crazy Birds with Distress Inks, don't they look a handsome pair!

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

You did a phenomenal job on this card! I love how it is a mix of whimsy and total classiness! That background alone is enough to make me swoon and I love the way you incorporated the new SSS church dies. The romance here is so sweet and I adore everything about your techniques and your vision.
