Where there is Love . . .

I hope everyone is enjoying some nice weather now that spring has finally arrived. I don't know what you do when the weather turns warm, but I bet it's not what my girls do!! The littlest one is not quite as bad, she decided sliding on the slide was more fun. Just thought I would share in case you needed a little smile (or an "eeww, gross").



I would much rather make cards than play in the mud! : ) This card uses the Viva La Verve May week 2 sketch, the Pretty Palette #8 (My Time Made Easy) of ivory/rose/celery, the Our Daily Bread Designs challenge to use embedded embossing, and the Timeless Tuesday #117 (Flourishes) Anything Goes challenge. My rose paper is rose red from SU! which I stamped with the same ink using a flower jumbo wheel stamp. After I stamped the main panel and adhered the green borders (made using the Upper Crest punch from fiskars) and adhered it to the card base, I embossed it with a damask cuttlebug folder to get the "embedded embossed" look. It's a bit hard to see in the pictures, but it is really cool in real life. I used a labels 4 die (stamped with a french script stamp in versamark) and scalloped tag die by spellbinders for the focal image. The sentiment and two hearts are from Text Objects by Verve.
