Great Impressions: February Monthly Challenge: Let's Celebrate!

Hi, friends!  It's time for another monthly challenge at Great Impressions, and we are asking you to CELEBRATE!  Any card that celebrates ANYTHING goes this month.

Since it's February, love is on my mind. ;) I made a shabby chic Valentine/Anniversary card to share with you for this challenge.  Take a peek..

I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment, E859 Heart Forever Yours, on some vellum, then added some white Glaze gel pen and Stickles to the heart.

I accented the sentiment with some paper flowers (some made by the lovely Cohenna), buttons, enamel dots, and rhinestones.  I also added some black leaves to tie in the colors I was going for.

My kraft card base was prepped with some floral patterned paper that I faux stitched, and a fun layered heart doily die cut from kraft cardstock and pink glitter paper.  I LOVE the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too!  I can't wait to hear what you think in the comments below!

That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
