Be Mine, Valentine...


Greetings! It is Saturday and time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time, our challenge is to create a project using both "Hearts and Flowers."  Since Valentine's Day will be here before we know it, I thought I would create a Valentine along these lines.  I began with this adorable image by FlonzCraft, which happens to be our sponsor over at FSC.  One lucky participant of our challenge will win a gift voucher worth $20 to purchase his or her own FlonzCraft images.  After watercoloring the image with Distress Markers, and adding a bit of Ranger Stickles, I mounted it to a felt die cut heart which was added to a paper doily.  Both were added to a card base which was stamped with Festive Berries Distress Ink and several complimentary images I received recently from Crafty Individuals when placing an order. The sentiment is by Red Lead Paperworks. The card was also wrapped with repurposed ribbon and foam glitter hearts, a red and white bow and paper flowers complete my card.

Love the way the little sweeties have taken center stage on that heart! Stunning design and layers! Oh and that doily reminds me of when there use to be a doily on top of the chocolates in a box! Maybe still, but no one buys me candy (by choice). Happy Sunday!

Hearts and flowers at their best Yvonne. Red and white is such a striking combination but the image in the middle just pops for me.
