Heart Bouquet


No finger painting today. I am getting in the mood for Valentines.

The border was made with Spellbinder Borderabilites Curved Borders Two. I love those dies and bought them before Christmas. I could never find a time to use them so out they came for this card.

The heart dies were given to me for Christmas by my sister along with other goodies I can't wait to use. I stamped an image from Inspired by Stamping for a background for the hearts and stems. It's really a simple card and was fun to create.

This card was entered in the  Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge IC422.

A Creative Romance-Something New is the challenge. Can be a new baby, new job, new crafting stash.  My new stash is the heart die and the curved border die.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge wants to see Something New-that would be my new heart die and Spellbinder curved border die

This is so elegant. Love that S/B cutout...clever you to use it in such a way. Your pretty red hearts against the B&W damask is so striking. Check out the PB All Sorts challenge...this would be great entered there. Doesn't have to be a PB image, just something romantic & non-digi. This is just lovely. TFS & Hugs...stay warm.

Adore the 3D effect with the heart pins! I have not seen the curved borders by Spellbinders .. I like it! Awesome card!

The rain and wind are in fulll swing. With that I'm assuming the temp is plunging too.
