Great Impressions: Love, Love, Love!

Hello, blogging friends!  It's time for a new monthly challenge at Great Impressions!  This month, we're looking for creations that fit this theme...

Yep, absolutely ANYTHING that has to do with LOVE!  It could be a Valentine, or a wedding card, or a thinking of you card, or an anniversary card, or a birthday card, ANY card, really, because don't we always make each creation with LOVE?! :)  I went the way of the Valentine, but this image/sentiment combo could also be used for Easter!  Take a peek...

I started by stamping and heat embossing the image, E564 Bunny Love, three times on three different papers--the main panel, a piece of white cardstock, and a piece of coordinating patterned paper.  I then paper pieced the image and added some shine to the hearts and pink to the bunny with a Spectrum Noir marker.  I then added a few rhinestones around the image for some more shine and sparkle!

Next, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, C343 Somebunny Loves You, on the same panel that the image is on.  I like this black embossing powder with a bit of shine to it--I got it ages ago at a garage sale for a very good price!

I then added some lace trim and ribbon to divide the sentiment from the image.  This completed the main focal panel.

Next, I added some patterned paper, doilies, and sequin trim to a card base so that it would coordinate with the main focal panel.  I used the coordinating patterned paper that I used with the paper pieced image so the design would be cohesive.

The last step was to add the focal panel to the card base!  I decided to add it with dimensional foam to add more depth and interest.  Voila!  A totally darling Valentine!  I love it!  What do you think?  I'd love it if you left me a comment letting me know!

That's all for now, friends!  THANK YOU for stopping by today to take a peek at my card!  I hope you come and join in the fun with our monthly challenge and that you leave some love with the other gals on the DT for their fabulous creations using products from the Great Impressions store as well!  If you ever use Great Impressions stamps, make sure you link up with our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
