Wedding Wish...

Well, We're right in the middle of Wedding season!  When I received the Bella Rose collection in the mail a few weeks ago, I began having visions of how to use it.  I hardly ever use stamping ink of any color other than my BLACK ink but for some reason, All I kept thinking of when I saw this lace and the roses was RED and GOLD...So I worked hard to duplicate my vision...The distressed edges on the image strips was an after thought when I was done because I felt it needed a little shabby contrast to go with the overly formal look.  Anyone that knows me knows that I AM NOT A FORMAL I had to wrinkle things up a bit!!!
