DDSC #89 - New Beginnings

My second post today is for this week's Digi Doodle Shop Challenge where we have a great theme of "New Beginnings" - new home, new baby, marriage, retirement - the choice is yours.

I chose Marriage for my "New Beginning" and used this gorgeous digi stamp from The Digi Doodle Shop called "Loving Rose" - ideal for Valentine's Day too.

Close-ups showing glitter detail ........

..... and Glossy Accents

and this is the inside.

Medium - Promarkers and Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Glossy Accents
Papers - Tim Holtz Ideal-ogoy "Vintage Shabby" and MME Lost & Found "Madison Avenue"
Heart - cut on my Cricut
Pearls, ribbon, heart charm, cardstock - stash
Sentiment - freebie (can't remember where from)

I really hope you will hop on over to the Digi Doodle Shop Challenge and take a look at the rest of the DT's work - I am sure you will be inspired by the variety of creations. Also, check out what's new at The Digi Doodle Shop - there are some great 99cents deals available until 1st March when these stamps will be removed forever....... 

.....and you can now collect Award Points on your purchases - see full details in the shop.

That's it from me for today.
