May Arts, Stampendous, AND Core'dinations...PaRtY!!!!

Howdy! We are hopping ALL WEEK long with May Arts and Stampendous. 
How much fun is that?????
All of these companies are giving away goodies on their blogs AND Core has a secret DT member blog they have picked out to choose a random winner, too!  There are some Core Tags, May Arts ribbon AND Stampendous stamps up for grags ALL WEEK LOOOOOOOOOOOONG! 

It feels so so so good to be crafting again!

Here is the order for today:

I created a Bridal Shower card for today for my cousin. For the base I uses a David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system card base in smooth kraft. I looooove making square cards!  Thanks to Andrea who got me hooked on this ;)
I stamped right on the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock with the large rose bloom cling stamp from Stampendous and then heat embossed with some Stamendous glitter embossing powder. After cutting it out, I adhered it with some Tombow 3D power tabs and then finished off with a David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system pearl tag, sticker and string. 

I layered the cut out rose over some wired burlap string. I know it is hard to see but this string has white and pink stitching  on it...gorgeous! Remember you can click on the images to make them larger.




Here is an image of this stamp I just LOVE and use 24/7:



And the string:
