Love Grows

Hi dear friends,

I created this soft, pastel pink card for the Lili of the Valley challenge with the theme “Romance”. Holding thumbs that I am still in time to enter the challenge – time just flies, can’t believe it’s Wednesday already. As “love” is the buzz word this time of the year with Valentine’s Day coming up, the heart punches and dies, love sentiments and stamps have a permanent place on my crafting table. Hopefully from tomorrow I can stock up on birthday cards again!

I entered my card for the following challenges:

I used the following to create the card:

  • White, pink, green and gingham paper
  • Lili of the Valley stamp “Love Grows”
  • Sissix embossing folder “Swirly Vines with Hearts”
  • Martha Stewart punch “Doily Lace”
  • Marianne Design Creatables die for leaves
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Circles” and “Scalloped circles”
  • Cuttlebug die “Hearts and Stamps”
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink “Tattered Rose”
  • Faber-Castell Aquarelle and Lyra Rembrandt Aquarelle watercolour pencils
  • Paper roses
  • Seam binding
  • Pearls
  • Peel Off’s

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week.

Greetings from South Africa,

Amelia
