love you... {lots}

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card for several challenges:  Less Is More (color challenge pink & grey), Freshly Made Sketches and Verve Diva Inspiration (vivacious valentine).  Less is More is celebrating four years of CAS fun!  My how time flies... seems like just a few months ago they started out!  Happy Birthday LIM wishing you many more years of fantastic CAS challenges!  Here is my card:

 
I used three different Verve sets for my card, Better Together, No Matter What and Chevron Love.  The heart was die cut using the heart from the Wavy Hearts die set that matches the heart from Chevron Love.   After stamping the grey border image I decided to add some splatters using Pink Pirouette refill and water.  Tied on the grey baker's twine and then popped up the heart and arrow.  A final little heart, the sentiment and some grey sequins (sadly they don't look grey in the photo) finished things off.   

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Smoky Slate; Stamps and dies:  Verve; Inks:  Stampin Up!; grey baker's twine and grey sequins

Hello Rosie,
I am loving the palette...This combination always looks beautiful.
Adding the splatters finishes the design off extremely well.
