Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop and Challenge!!

Good Morning- so glad you stopped by today. The Serendipity Stamps DT are showing off some new goodies in the store and combining it with this month's Serendipity Stamps Challenge-- This month it's all about backgrounds!! AND this time around the DT were asked to add an additional challenge... Wedding/Anniversary! It's that time of year!!


You should have arrived here from Miriam's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below.  

I have one card for you today...


I started with white cardstock and heat embossed the Beaded Strings background stamp with white embossing powder, the sides were distressed for a little vintage feel. Next I die cut two of the Heart Scroll Valance and Border die- sponged with pink and grey ink and attached. Stamped the Wedding Cake, colored with copics, fussy cut out and adhered in the center. The Congratulations die was cut with white and pink/coral cardstock- layered and adhered with foam dots for dimension. Added some ribbon and a fancy rhinestone. 

Here's a little close up- you can see that I used the  Beaded Strings background stamp. Once I started I just seemed to add more and it was covered up a little :)



Don't forget to leave comments as you hop.... the prize is a $20 gift certificate to one commenter randomly selected from all the blogs.    You can leave comments through 6-19 .. the winner will be announced on Mary's blog on 6-20.

Last, but not least.... the stamp of the month....Love is Patient, Love is Kind at 50% off...



Your next stop on the hop is my sweet friend Jeanne Jachna (the full list is below). Jeanne is the Queen of bright colors... they're beautiful too!!
There are lots of new goodies :) in the store, you can find them here

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
