I'm loving these sparkly hydrangeas...I purchased a few different colors. These particular flowers matched Stampin' Up!'s Groovy Guava stitched ribbon perfectly so I paired them together. This stamp is from a real old set, Celebration of Thanks. I just never get tired of this set!
Then I decided to pair old with new:
I used the "Forever and Always" from the previously released No Matter What set and matched that with "Smitten" from the freshly inked More Than Love set. I inked up a square of pink paper, distressed the edges with Black Soot distress ink and then added a layer of clear crystal glitter to the perimeter. The glitter helped to tone down the black a bit and add some vintage/girly-ness as well. I also added some paper flowers, satin ribbon, daisy chain lace and Onyx Pearl Liquid pearls.
