A gift “just for you”

Summer and love is in the air, so let’s celebrate love, weddings and anniversaries!

Don’t run Miguel really has a gift for you, look:

Just for you… it was all beginning with a card, that I altered with distress inks and spattered on it with Lindy’s stamp gang spray.

It’s so romantic, that altered paper and the spatters, what else do I miss to a proper romance, well some flowers, a gift, love and because it’s summer open air, and maybe a candle light… okey the candle light is not so important. So for the open air feeling I stamped barcode with pine needles and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Than I sewed my heart and my “green grass” barcode to my card.

Than I wanted those flowers somewhere, so I added Janet Klein’s little flower stamped with archival ink and colorized with Lindy’s stamp gang spray.

And then came the gift part, Miguel is just so cute with his box in his hands, of course I still added a little heart on his box for more love.

And as you see I deliberately sewed my “green grass” barcode as a pocket, I wanted to hide there a secret message:

So I used France Papillon barcode text stamp and I added my phrase: just for you to my card, just pull and tadaah:

I am sharing my work with Stampotique designer’s challenge: anniversary, wedding and love.
