How to: dig deep in your stash

Coming back home after vacation can be annoying... everything is so grey, usual and dusty... Me no like it!
Anyway, I've spent a lovely time in Italy, both visiting towns and hiding in the 'middle of nowhere' agroturismos with wonderful food, wine and silence. No, I didn't take my Promarkers with me LOL
Staying in romantic mood, here's our new challenge at
Blog Badge
and the theme is
How many times you have found something with 'OMG! I totally forgot I have these!'? Yep, this is that kind of a challenge.
Our sponsor for this one is

So, I digged deep and said 'OMG! I totally forgot I have got this stamp!' And it was perfect for the wedding card I have been asked to make.
For this easel card I am using the rubber stamp 'Love me do' from Wee Stamps. And I have no idea why I've hidden it so well. It's colored with Promarkers, cut with Spellbinders die and distressed with distress ink.
The bow is also made from a piece of fabric I've been having like forever and the pearl button is from my Mum's stash.
There is no sentiment on the card, just the Bride and Groom's names and the date of wedding.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Gorgeous nostalgic card! Thank you for joining in my first ever challenge at Quirky Crafts Challenge. I love how the old postal images add to the nostalgic feel of your creation with the old button, fabric and shading of the mat. Hugs! Cindy :)
