Romance and Love...

Hello there!

I have been suffering from a loss of mojo for a few weeks - life's been a bit stressful and it's always my creativity that suffers :(  However, all is not lost!  I managed to have a little creative session and play along with the challenges I have been unforgivably neglecting.  

I don't normally go in for the whole Valentine's thing if I'm honest - but I am feeling it this year!  

So, here is my Valentine's card for the WOW! Embossing Powder Challenge - Romance and Love - awww!  :)

EDIT: I nearly forgot to mention that I have also entered this into the CASology challenge for  this week where the cue card is;

Thank you Ardyth for pointing out that my card qualifies!!

I know this photograph doesn't show it very well, but the sentiment is embossed with red sparkly embossing powder!  The damask paper is actually wrapping paper - sshhh, don't tell anyone!  It was what my brother used to wrap our Christmas present in - he purposefully used too much because he knew that I'd love it and that it would go on to have a better life as an up-cycled embellishment :)  I drew and cut out the hearts by hand - I really must get some heart dies - they are on my wish list!  The damask heart was attached to the card front with a little hand stitching - very therapeutic :)

Thanks for stopping by :)

Card:      Paper Mill Direct - White, Bright Red; damask wrapping paper
Stamps: Hero Arts - Valentine Flourishes
Ink:        Papermania - Red; Distress Ink - Barn Door, Vintage Photo (on edges of solid red heart)
