Packaged With Love


Hi, friends!  I'm here today with a fun Valentine with bright colors and a shabby feel!  I just finished taking a very stressful test today, and so, after I took a nap, ate some dinner, and turned on the TV, I realized I NEEDED to craft!  So, I did!  Come and take a peek at the final product!


I started with a card base that was layered with some glitter paper by DCWV and shabby vintage looking patterned paper from the Bramble Rose collection by My Mind's Eye.  I then added a lace paper doily for a bit more texture before layering on my other elements.


The next step was the hearts.  I used some more floral paper from the Bramble Rose pad, some chevron paper from an old Recollections collection, and polka dot paper from a Recollections polka dot paper package.  A sentiment from Inspired By Stamping was added along with some gems from Want 2 Scrap and rhinestone hearts from Darice (deep red) and Studio 120 (pink).


Lastly, I added some twine from my stash and some flowers and leaves from Inspired By Stamping.  I chose orange two tone roses to tie in the other oranges on the card.  I am just in LOVE with this fun color combo for Valentine's Day!


All that was left was to take the pictures of the card! ;)  I am loving the way it all came together and think that the patterns all go rather well as a group!  What do you think?  I'd love for you to let me know by leaving me a comment!


I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~






That's all for me today!  I hope that you find some time to create something soon and that you join the fun of these fabulous challenge, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
