Less is More - Week 87 - Lucky Dip

This week's challenge over at Less is More is a Lucky Dip and the lovely ladies have come up with:

For our 5 week months we have a 'Lucky Dip' challenge and a special guest.
this month we have asked Susan Goetter to join us. You will all know and love her as she is such an inspiration, entering multiple challenges every week.....what a star!
Our challenge this week is
Love & Marriage

For my card I have gone with a silver and white theme and I have used my Spellbinders Majestic Elements which consist of six dies but you can mix and match them to create 20+ designs.  For this I have literally just die cut white pearl card and decoupaged the elements up using silicone.  The backing card has been embossed with my Cheery Lynn XL embossing plate Foliage.  The sentiment is Waltzingmouse Stamps and stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with silver detail e/p.  The flowers are from my stash and I've punched the leaves using my Nellie Snellen punch & emboss duo set.  I've added some Liquid Pearls as a finishing touch.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.

    Yes, I do get the best comments from my followers! And I did go check out Professor Stanley. What a total crackup!! I can write gobbledygook like nobody's business, but I could never speak it. He made it look so easy, but it had to be HARD!!

    Here in America, here in this house anyway, we often use the expression "gobbledygook," so it's really fun to see the origin of the word! We had no idea! (I shall pop over for Lunch with the Lady Jan and tell her thanks, too!)

    Be well, Kay! If you can't be well, be a shallow rivulet! Ha! That's a good one. I shall try to remember it and make it a bloggedygook! xo, Dee
