But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle made for two - tra, laa

As soon as I realised that SU were retiring their 'Wedding Wheels' stamp of course I just had to have it didn't I - greedy little pig :(

This week's challenge over at Less Is More is a Lucky Dip and it's 'Love and Marriage' so out came the stamp for its first airing of what I think will be many:
I used:

- 5" x 5" square white card stock

- SU's 'Wedding Wheels' stamp and Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad, image cut using an oval Nestie

- a snippet of purple mirri card cut using the same Nestie but by drawing round the outside of it and cutting by hand

- sentiment stamped in Tuxedo Black and using a stamp from SU's 'Congrats' set

- two Josy Rose 'hot fix' purple hearts

A small and simple card - and as a lot of people are choosing shades of purple for their wedding 'colour scheme' I think it could be deemed as 'on trend' - truth be known I selected the hearts first and then rootled through the snippets folder for matching card :)

And the ovals are lined up OK, I just wasn't crouching low enough when I took the photo - if I get right down I just mightn't get back up again!

Len pitched in today to help sort out the logo business - what a star :)
