Moving on to Love Themes!

Ok, so it's time to move away from Christmas themes to something else, and what better than some LOVE!  So here is a very simple card which will go into my OWH box.

Paper: PTI
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Colorbox White, Versamark, Chalk Inks, White Gel Pen
Other: Clear Button (Hero Arts), Twine (The Twinery), White Embossing Powder

I stamped the Stencil Flower from Hero Arts with Versamark on Kraft cardstock, and used white embossing powder with my heat tool to emboss it.  I then filled in the edges of the flower petals with my white gel pen. I also used a little pink chalk ink and added it very lightly to the entire flower, but more so in the centre.  I just wanted a very soft look.

I glued a piece of patterned polka dot paper behind a clear button using Glossy Accents and threaded some twine through it before adhering it to the centre of the flower.  I then adhered the flower to the card base and stamped the sentiment in white.

I hope that you are all having a wonderful day!  Thank you for stopping by my blog!
