True Love

I'm back with another Valentine tonight!  I can't sleep...I drank too much caffeine earlier and I'm a bit wired.  I really need to stop doing that every once in a while because the headache that comes afterwards is never worth it...  Anyway, it did give me a chance to make another Valentine!

Here's the card~

For these fabulous challenges~

(Use dies on your project.)

This was such a fun card to create!!!  I don't do vintage style nearly as often as I wish that I did.  I find it very time consuming because I can't think of what to put together, etc., but when I say Windy's card, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do!

I've used papers by Authentique, dies by Spellbinders, a dry embossing folder (white die cut) by Sizzix, rhinestones by Prima, sentiments by Making Memories and an unknown company, ribbon from my stash, and Versamark black ink.  I used some of the pattern paper to fussy cut out the flower spray and added some rhinestones for glittering accents in the middle.  A few rhinestones on either side of the sentiment was the perfect balance of bling!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my little card!  I appreciate each and every one of you! :)  Hello to my newest followers--thank you for being here! I hope you're all inspired by what you see and that you take some time today to join these fabulous challenges!  Happy stamping! :)

This is another gorgeous romantic card Mynnette! I have a real problem with caffeine - if I inadvertently drink it, I feel as if I've been poisoned! Vicky x

wish I could do vintage like this! It is a fab take on Windy's card! Perhaps you should try wine and not coffee.......not sure what that would do to your creative mojo though!
