Sisterhood - LOVE

It's HUMP DAY everyone!
And, time for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
With the big "LOVE" holiday just two days away, 
that is our focus today . . .

does not have to be Valentine's Day ... 
can be Wedding, Anniversary ... or just I {heart} You!

 How cute is this picture?  Rustic ... but cute!
(do you see the loving couple kissing through the back window?)
I snagged it over on Pinterest under the category of Old Trucks!
My background was constructed from a variety of Valentine paper scraps in my stash.  The XOXO ribbon is from Michael's ... Mr. & Mrs. stamp by Inkadinkado ... Heart Circle from a Reminisce Sticker sheet probably purchased at Joann's (old).  A little a matting and faux stitching ... Viola! 

A few qualifying challenges:
{PIN}spirational Challenge #94 - photo inspiration
Cardz 4 Guyz -  Truly, Madly Deeply LOVE (what guy wouldn't love this truck!)
City Crafter Challenge - Love Bug
Ladybut Crafts Ink TLT - For the One I Love
Paperminutes - Love is in the Air
Sweet Stamps - Love

Now this second creation is a little more on the Elegant side.
This card could be used as a Wedding card 
but also as a 50th Wedding Anniversary card.

Design elements are:
Paper:  SU Very Vanilla card stock, The Paper Company 'Gold Foil on Ivory' dp from Joann's, Gold Metallic from Hollo's Paper Co.
Accessories:  Cheery Lynn Designs #DL128 "Two of Hearts" die, Michaels gold metallic edged white organza ribbon, pop dots, bow easy
Stamps/Ink:  JustRite, Versafine Onyx

I hope you'll come join our LOVE challenge at the Sisterhood!
If you'd like a chance to become our Step Sister 
(1 month-2 challenge opportunity)
play along in our challenges and add "SS" after your name.
That's all there is to it!

Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .

Darlene, you have made two very beautiful cards here. :) There's such a versatility in your creativity. The golden card is so neat and pretty. The first card is cool, chic and modern too (with a touch of vintage). Thank you for joining us at {PIN}Spirational Challenges. Please come back soon :) We have a new challenge starting today.
