Saturday Spotlight Challenge: No Hearts

The weekend is finally here! There are times where the work week seems so long...you know what I mean. =) Now that the weekend is here, it's time to relax and take it easy and also time for a new challenge with Saturday Spotlight!! The challenge this week is to create a card or project to represent love using no hearts. This can be a really hard thing to do if you use hearts for most of your love projects.
The card I made is using a wedding couple from The Greeting Farm. Because the challenge is to use no hearts, I decided that vintage was the best way to go. I added flowers and some pearls along with some stitching with my sewing machine.
Here's a close up of the happy couple! I have had this stamp since it first came out but never had a chance to ink it up until this challenge. I think this will make a cute wedding card for any couple, and it was really simple to create, especially if you don't want to use too many embellishments.
Be sure to check out the blog to see the other DT creations and this week's prize!!
Have a great weekend!!

Jodi (smiles), this is such a beautiful wedding card and that image is so cute. I love how you colored their hair! How I wish I could hold a Copic marker and color the way you do! I've tried, many times, believe me! And that stitching, it's just awesome! I'm going on a short vacation (1/11-1/20) so I'll chat with you later. You can stay up late because it's the weekend! Yay! So have fun creating more delish cards! Hugs, Cami
