From the Heart

Second post today.....trying to catch up with some challenges.
The challenge at Cheery Lynn- to use lace- inspired me to create a Valentine's Card.  I knew I wanted to use Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish Die...one of my most favorite dies. I cut the die twice from some white iridescent card stock. I found some red lace in my lace box that I have had forever from a challenge prize.  Trying to use up some of my stash. I cut 3 scalloped hearts using Nesties and GKD red card stock and layered with pop up dots. I used a white card base , then a layer of the red card stock, topped with an embossed textured white card stock using Cuttlebug EF Victoria...gives a romantic feel.  I edged this layer with the lovely red lace and arranged the flourishes and the stack of hearts. I finished with a banner stamped with Flourishes " From the Heart" that I free  cut. I may add some pearls to the heart but leaving card as is for this post.

Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge: Lace (real or faux)
Tuesday Morning Sketches: Anything goes. No sketch this week which is unusual for this blog. I used more layers than I usually do, and liked stacking the hearts and letting the flourish float on the card rather than gluing it down.
Crafty Friends Challenge:  Add a splash of color to white

It is always fun to find forgotten items in your stash which are the perfect item for a card.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

You get two Patti's in a row today! Your card is beautiful, it has such a classy elegant look and I do really like that you left the flourish unattached too.

Theresa, so glad you stopped by my blog this morning. I've been away quite a bit(most of December) and glad to be back.

Your card is gorgeous. I guess we are both in a Valentine mood. :-)

Plus, I love your blog background..so pretty and wintry.

Have a great New Year!
