One Word Sentiment

I recently found a new challenge called the Alphabet Challenge
Every other Friday at 9:00 am, they set a new challenge using the letters from the alphabet with a theme for each one.
This week the letter is "O" and it stands for "One Word Sentiment".  Interesting and challenging!  Right?
I pulled out some older stamps and dies for this one.  I feel like I get so caught up in having to have all the newest stamps from so many amazing companies, that I neglect using my older supplies that I've enjoyed in the past. 

So for this card, I used a postage stamp background from PTI and added the "LOVE" die from MFT Stamps, "LOVE Centerpiece" that I cut out of some music print paper that I've had in my stash for a long time.  I decorated each letter using stamps from WPlus9's "Fresh Cut Florals", an old favorite of mine. 

 I hope you like today's card.  I encourage you to pull out some of your older supplies and give them some love.

I'll also be adding this to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!

If there is only one word....that is certainly THE one! It looks really beautiful and the colors are fabulous! I actually held a red rubber stamp in my hand the other day, it's vintage! ;) lol Pretty creation!!!

This is SOOOOOO pretty Birgit! I just LOVE all the colors and the PP and additions you added to your letters! And what a neat challenge...I will have to check them out! And you are so right about so many of our older but beloved stamps not getting used because we all think we NEED the latest and greatest! I will try to do better!! Hugs. :0)
