Always and Forever

Good morning everyone and Happy Valentine's Day!

It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's letter is... A for Always and Forever!  
So any LOVE creation will do...  Anniversary, Valentines, Weddings- it's up to you!
I decided to make a Anniversary card with an adorable image from Wee Stamps!  It's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics, the circle sentiment is from Jaded Blossom and the postage stamp/die cut is from Whimsy stamps.  I used a Fiskars punch for the corners and all three papers are from Teresa Collins- You are my Happy collection. The edges have been distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink and to finish it up I added some hand dyed seam binding and there you have it!

For more inspiration be sure to stop by the challenge blog and take a look at the DT fabulous creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
