More Romance with Gingersnap Creations

I'm very happy to be participating with the fabulous
Gingersnap Creations Challenge
representing the creative team at The Artistic Stamper,
this month's sponsor.

The theme for this week's challenge is 'Romance'.
These birds look like they know a thing or two about romance, so they were my inspiration.

I used the fabulous new stamps from
Artistic Stamper's 'Romance' Collection.
The wonderful 'Heart Background' is so versatile.  
I also used the 'Roses are Red' set 
to stamp the heart shape and the sentiment.  
I used Ranger's Crackle Accents for a special effect on the heart.
I also used a variety of Stickles to highlight the clip art which is from Sandra Evertson's 'Wedding' Book.
Prima Flowers add the finishing touches.

Hope you will stop by Gingersnap Creations and see what their design team have offered for inspiration for this week's challenge.

Hope your week is going well.  We are half way through and it's been a busy and creative one for me.  Make sure you stop by tomorrow to see the new challenge from The Play Date Cafe.
