adorable you..

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card that I made using some new Concord & 9th stamps and dies.  When I saw the January Concord & 9th release I fell in love with the Layers of Love die set and had to have it!!   I purchased it with the companion stamp set Layers of Love and used it to create my card.  I also used one of their Happy Hues card bases.  I die cut my panel from one of the bases and then die cut the heart from that.  I centered my die cut piece on a white card base and stamped the sentiment using brown ink.  Before adhering the panel to the card base I did some partial embossing on the card base where the sentiment is for additional interest. There is a little corner floral piece that comes with the Layers of Love die set and I die cut that from the other part of the Happy Hues card base and adhered that to the heart along with a length of Concord & 9th blush sequin strand.   I added a little bow tied using fine silver thread and then some of the little blush sequins that came off the strand after I cut my piece.  I absolutely ADORE how this card turned out!!  I'm posting it to the current CASology challenge - adore (I adore this new die set), as well as a new to me challenge (thank you Petra for sharing about it on your blog!!) called Global Design Project - CASE the designer, (I went with having a large heart on my design like the inspiration card) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes, and Lori Hairston's Valentine's/hearts challenge.  Here is a close up of the little floral detail I created.
