Quick Quotes Challenge!

Greetings and Happy Friday to you!

Quick Quotes has a really fun new challenge up for Friday -- how cool is that?!!!  To kick off this fun, our first challenge is being hosted by Michelle Granger.  Her challenge?  Use a number somewhere on your project.  Fun!

I'll be honest, I wasn't exactly sure where the number was going to come into my project, but I did know that I wanted to play with the new Damsel In Distress papers that I had received!  Such a romantic and soft pretty collection, it was whispering to me, honest!

Here is what I created:
I used my Cricut Expression and the new Flower Shoppe cartridge for quite a few of the flowers, and a variety of my punches for others.  I also cut the flourishes with my Cricut as well.  The quote is framed with Spellbinders Labels Three. 

This is one of our wedding photos that I just love so much!  It captures that moment in time where everything just stood still and it was us, finally joining our lives together.  There is something very calming and romantic to me in this photo and I hope I did it justice.

Here are some details:
You can see that I've included more of my uber favorite Frosted Flourishes!  The trim and netting are goodies that I had in my scrappy goody bag.  The coordinating buttons and heart epoxies are made using Epiphany Crafts products. 
Here's another detail photo for you.  I've also added some Perfect Pearls in Platinum to my butterfly and to the far right flower.  Where's my number for the challenge?  On the clock face as well as I wrote our wedding date above the "Time Stands Still" sentiment block.  I used our Powder Puff Chalk Ink in Midnight Confessions very gently to ink the edges of my elements.

We can't wait to see what you do with the challenge, please make sure to stop by the Quick Quotes Blog to get all of the challenge details!  Thank you to Michelle for hosting our first challenge!

Have a super scrappity day!
~ Rhonda
