Heart Felt

Hello Classy friends, Diane here with you today
with my creation for our challenge this week
Shabby Chic Valentine.

Though my card has a heart, it could be used for just about
any occasion, thinking of you, just because, birthday, etc.
I don't know about you, but I just "heart" (pun intended) heart dies!!

The gorgeous background paper is from the Authentique Faith 6 x 6 paper pad.
I truly am thinking of ordering another pad of this paper, 
as it is full of the most lovely neutral papers I have seen.
Both the bow and the doily trim are cut from the same paper in the pad,
as is the background paper and bow.
I'm telling you, the designs are just beautiful in this pack!

The bow is so intricate and detailed.
A handy tool to remove all those little pieces from the die
when finished is the Spellbinders  Tool 'n One.

The beautiful heart was cut from Poison Ivy Curious Metallic paper,
then embossed with Crafts-Too Dots embossing folder.

To finish, I added La Creme Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by...see you soon!

I must have the bow die! I think it has a matching solid die, too, right? Also love the borders and the soft colors you used. It's SO like the inspiration photo. That photo could really inspire some gorgeous cards -- just like yours!
