Mymessage card (maybe) similar to fantasy card

So it's late and I couldn't think of any snappy titles. Maybe I'll come up with something better in the morning...

A card I made late this evening for the mymessage challenge over at the Hero Arts Blog. I don’t think it qualifies since I only used one HA stamp {there is no one like you}. I didn’t intend for it to be that way…

I had had so much fun using the dress stamp and some fabric to create a card for the Caardvarks ‘Good Knight Fantasy’ Challenge that I asked my mom to send me remnants of the Duponi silk fabric she used to make my wedding dress. I would like to use this stamp and the silk fabric to make some engagement or wedding (Congratulations!) cards.

I stamped and then tried to emboss on the silk (like my Caardvark submission) but the embossing didn’t really take.

The sentiments and the clock are from one of the Visual Artistry sets by Tim Holtz, which my husband gave me over the weekend. The sweet man walked into Michaels in State College, PA (where he’s a visiting Professor) on our anniversary (since he wasn’t able to be home) and picked out some clear stamp sets he thought I might like. He done good!

Anyway, I guess I got carried away with the Tim Holtz stamps and it wasn’t until I was done that I realized I had only the one little HA stamp, but since I made the card I figured…what the heck, I might as well submit it.

a beautiful card.... I love that dress stamp. It is so inspiring a stamp. Love all the things you've done to the card. Imagine using material from your wedding dress- how fantastic. Love the whole distressed look to it.
