Because You Are So Sweet

This is my post going "live" today at
inviting YOU to head on over and "leave some love!!

Hello Classy Friends, Diane with you today

I had so much with this card.....
I pulled out my Memory Box "Star Dust" stencil and 
I added a bit of TH Pink Sherbet Alcohol Ink to the paste,
mixing and applying it with my Palette Knife

I love the soft look it gives to my background!!

The flowers are a Memory Box "Blushing Bouquet" die
which I cut twice so I could stack the flowers....
My flowers were "painted with Twinkling H2Os using  the colors
Luv-u-pink, Dreams Bloom and Lucky Apple from the "Think Pink" set
and Chiffon Pink from the "Springtime" set...

To the center of the flowers, I added "Sage Green" Pearls

The sentiment is from JustRite "Just The Right Words"

From a previous card I did I had a piece of the Heavyweight Vellum card stock
sitting out, so cut 2 of the Joy!Crafts Butterflies ....
I love the soft look of the butterflies!!

Hi Diane, this is one gorgeous card. I am so loving the way you've used the stencil and that faint touch of pink. But what really blew me away were the lovely flowers. You certainly found the perfect ribbon to trim this beautiful card. TFS & Hugs.
