Why I Love You

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Hi Friends! Only four more cards to go in the SCS Love Fest Challenge, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet so I can get them all done today. :)
This one is for LOVEFEST2013K, sponsored by The Greeting Farm. The challenge is to create a love-themed card using dies. The sentiment is heat embossed with super fine embossing powder and there is a teeny pink rhinestone over the "i." The die I used on the front of this card is a new one I got at the Lawrenceville convention recently--Fantastic Flourish Two. It's actually an L-shaped corner die, but I cut it in half and clustered them together, then added Stickles for lots of sparkle (there are rhinestones in the lower right corner, also), so I'll be entering this in the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #209 All That Glitters challenge, too! ;)

That bow is blinding in the photos, but it's very close to the real thing. My DD loves this card, simply because of the bow and the jeweled embellie on it. 

After all that intensity on the front, the inside, while still sparkly, gives your eyes a rest. :)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
