Love to Love You...

 Welcome crafty friends!
We made it through January and now February is upon us.  It's time once again for a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog With Valentine's Day just around the corner, our theme for the first challenge in February is, "Hearts".   Diane's team is hosting and Darlene's team is sharing their inspiration too.  

There's a prize being offered to one entry chosen by random draw along with Creative Winner badges.  Check out the mood board below for inspiration when creating your project.

Sizzix Thinlits 3 Die Set

My inspiration was the fun prints in the third photo.

I love making Valentine cards and this is just the first of many to come.   This pretty pink doily has been in my stash for too long and made a great mat for the focal sentiment circle.  

I used a border punch to create the strip through the middle under the doily and adhered glitter hearts in the negative areas and also around the doily.

Creatively beautiful with the pretty hearts paper and the pink doily, very inspiring to others to show just how creative you can get with papers and embellishments, the doily really sets off the card and reminds a lot of Valentines I used to receive, a beautiful card!!

Donna Phelan said...

Loving that gorgeous Designer Paper! That pink doily is the perfect place to lay that big and bold sentiment. And I love the glittery hearts too! So lovely!

Barbara said...

Wow! You did a lot with that designer paper. I would not have thought about a border. It works well and so does that doily for the sentiment.

Birgit said...

Such a sweet and fun design on this beautiful card, Vicki, and a great use of the design paper. The pink doily and the glittered hearts are the icing on the cake. Adorable!!

I love doilies - they are often the perfect embellishment. And your sentiment is spot on.
