Another chance to use my Spellbinders Curved Borders Two. I must have had them for 2 months or more. I just love them and this is only my second time to use them, on my last card and this one. This one uses two of six in the set.
I love this image by Heartfelt Creations/Bella Rose Heart and as I was making the card, I was wishing I had bought the die. Now, that I'm posting and looked at HFC's website, I realized I did buy the die. Oh, crazy me. Well, too late this time but I'll have it for the next one. This is another image I've had a while and never used so it is new to me. I'm thinking it has been retired. Hope not but I didn't find it tonight on their site. The sentiment is Inspired by Stamping/Flowers Bloom.
I colored the image with Copics , G20, E00, and E02.
If you need something to adhere your intricate dies with, such as the Memory Box Elegant Scroll Work die I used at the bottom of my card, I used Elmer's Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I recommend it.
I've also used a Martha Stewart eyelet lace punch and the embossing folder is by Anna Griffin, Acanthus. Also, I've added the clear rhinestones which took a quite a while to place.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Penny Black and More Challenge-January challenge-Love is in the Air-Mine is a wedding card
A Creative Romance-Something New-My heart image and curved borders are new
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Something New (heart image and curved borders)
The monthly fan club theme at SCS is It's a Beate-ful Life where we are honoring Beate as she retires. She has given us wonderful tutorials for 10 years. She did a tent topper tutorial and I decided
to do one in her honor.
I'm waking up to 5 degrees. Ouch!!! Won't get out of the teens again today. Too cold down south!
