Feel The Love Challenge from Flourishes


Hi to everyone! Flourishes is beginning to show the sneek peaks of their new releases for January. Today's release is just adorable and perfect for Valentine's Day, or for Birthdays, Get Well's, Friendship...and I could go on and on. Hop on over to the Flourishes Newsletter so you can get the deets...you are gonna love what you see!

The challenge is to show some Love. So I made this card using Flourishes "Lace Heart." You have seen me use this image time and again...but it is one of my favorite stamps and to me, nothing says Love like this image!

I got the red glittered paper from Hobby Lobby. I heat embossed red tinsel embossing powder on the image and sentiment. I used the Spellbinders Heart die to cut my image out. The ribbon came from Sharon Johnson's Ribbon Store. I just ordered almost evey color she had in this size ribbon because it is the very best that I have ever used. It is 100% silk. I also placed several red rhinestones around the image and on the sentiment, which comes with the Lace Heart set. Do click on the image to get a closer view.

Thank you all for stopping by...You comments just make my day!
