Valentine, I love you!


A warm hello to each of you!  After a two month hiatus, Eclectic Ellapu is back and kicking us off is the Pink Team!  Our challenge is to create a project using lots of texture.  I LOVE texture on a card and really enjoyed creating this one.  I began with gold embossing paste and stenciled it on using a Tim Holtz Stencil.  Next I layered on a paper doily and some Dresden Trim by Retro Art Cafe.  The gorgeous digital images are from Gecko Galz and finishing touches include some rhinestone heart gems and a bit of seam binding tied into a bow.  The sentiment was created using ChitChat Seasonal Stickers.  Please enjoy the inspiration pieces of the rest of the Pink Team and I hope you will submit a piece of your own for us to enjoy.  Have a great weekend!  Hugs, Yvonne

Beautiful Valentine, love how you have the hearts cascading, love the gold embossing paste (I have to find that!) and the dresden foil and doily work perfectly with the beautiful images. ~Diane
