A letter

I really really like making these altered letters. To fit in all the little things that makes it personal for just that person, without making the result cluttered is a challenge. A fun one!

 For this A the key elements were hearts, flowers, wine and travel. Ja okey, Elvis and chili too but I decided it would be too many things.... also, I didn't have anything like that in my stash. ;)

 Paper roses comes in any color. Lucky me, haha.

 Silver ribbon and wine barrel charm. I snitched the barrel from a "mark your glass to remember wich is yours"-set that I never ever use. Since I'm the only one drinking wine in my home, I can usually remember anyway. ;) The ribbon is recycled from a box of christmas ornaments.

The travel-theme was just right, and I think this is actually the first time I've used the complete stamp. I embellished it a little by adding silver embossing and some distress stickles.

There's no photo of it, but I - of course - stamped and embossed the name in white along the side.

It's been quite a while since I played along in a blog challenge,
so today I'll give it a go. :)

TIP: When you buy new clothes there's often a small ribbon that prevents the sweater to fall off the hanger in the store, that you snip off at home. Don't throw them away! Save them and use in smaller scrap projects. :)
