Your Special Day

Can't make every card flat, especially since I totally love the MFT Rolled Gardenia die! This time I used MFT English Rose felt I got in clearance ages ago & hadn't opened. The MFT Leaf Filled Flourish makes such a great background & I thought the soft green was pretty with the rose colored blooms.  The sentiment from MFT On the Line was stamped in StazOn Dove Gray & trimmed into a flag. Lately I've noticed little strips of color with a sentiment, so I die cut a green scrap with MFT Pinking Edge.  Hard to see in the photo, but the card front was stenciled in a curved strip using SSS Moroccan Stencil with Distress Paint Picket Fence.  The splotches are made with Hero Arts Wet Cement.  I'm entering these challenges:
MFT Sketch, SSS WedDies R Us, Die Cut Divas & Uniko Studio.
PS--the kitchen towels are still hanging up!
