Be Mine Now and Always...

Hi Everyone!  I've got a quick post today.  My 'work' is boring so I won't give you the details of that.  I took a break yesterday and made a card.  I really needed some crafting therapy.  As you can see from my card below, I'm still having a bit of fun with shaped cards and my new dies.  It's my birthday today and I've asked my hubby for the Spellbinder's Grand Calibur so I can use the larger dies in the sets that I've purchased lately.  We don't actually celebrate until Sunday so I'll have to wait til then to find out :-(

News: I've joined the PaperPlay Challenges DT!  I'm so excited to be joining this team.  They've got some really talented people on their team and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.  The challenge starting today is 'Hearts/Flowers...but not a Valentine'.  I didn't join the DT in time for a DT entry, but my card for today does have hearts and flowers on it! 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - #151 Hearts & Flowers!

A Spoonful of Sugar - #138 Let's See Some Love

Papertake Weekly - Have a Heart

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - #97 Hearts Gone Wild!

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Spring Flowers

The Pink Elephant - #93 Be My Valentine

Magnolia Down Under Challenges - #82 Love

I hope you enjoy my card!

Be Mine Now and Always

For this card, I've inked up #3008 Tilda with Heart from Magnolia's 'You're So Special' collection.  I've also used #520 Love Background on the heart in the background.  You can get both of these stamps and more at Magnolia-licious (my favorite place to shop for Maggies!).

The shape of this easel card was cut with my new Go Kreate XXL Square Frame Frilly #6 dies.  Love these dies!!!  The gorgeous dp's are from the Memory Box "Pixie" collection.  The lace and ribbon are scraps and I'm thrilled that I found a use for them.  The flowers are from WOC.  I colored the image with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with distress inks.  The large hearts were cut with a SB heart die.  The heart border was cut with a WOJ die.

This sweet sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.  It was cut with another WOJ die.  The pearls are from Zva Creative and I love how they show off the sentiment.

This card is currently for sale in my Etsy Shop.

That's it for today!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I truly hope you enjoyed my card.
