always and forever...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card for several challenges:  Time Out (Valentine's Day w/twist: hearts),  SSS Wednesday challenge:  hearts and Stampin' Celebration (I didn't really go with the colors... just the idea of love/hearts).   The layout is based on the current Freshly Made Sketches.  


I went with a white and gold combo with a touch of pink.  I realized this morning that I should have used some of the paper from my Teresa Collins Studio Gold paper pad, but I had put it away so unfortunately... "out of sight, out of mind"!  I used my Spellbinders plain and scalloped hearts and learned that I had lost one of the dies (total bummer!).   I partially embossed the two cardstock piece and then added some Crystal Stickles.  A bit of gold washi tape was used, as well.  The stamps are from Verve (No Matter What).  I stamped the hearts image in light pink and then overstamped it using Delicata Golden Glitz.   A few pink and gold sequins finished things off.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Verve; Dies:  Spellbinders; Inks:  Memento and Delicata; Washi Tape:  My Mind's Eye; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh & Verve; Crystal Stickles

Oh, the little touches of pink is just so very beautiful with all the white and the gold, Rosemary!!! A winner in my books!!! Love it!!

I once lost a small square die and after looking EVERYWHERE several times, I knew the only place it could be was in the waste paper bin (and it's a huge bin and it was filed right up to the top!!!) For a few days I didn't have the energy to go through the whole bin, but then one day I knew I had to do it cause I had to empty the bin!! I took out everything little bits at a time and then finally when almost at the bottom of the bin ...I GOT IT!!!! Must have fallen in there without me noticing. So maybe your bin is also close to where you work and your die is in there!!! If not ...hope you will find it somewhere soon!!!

Have a lovely Sunday afternoon!!!

Love the way the pink just "pops" from the card. Subtle and yet very effective! Love it.
