Lots of Love

                               This card is entered in a couple card challenges: One is  for The Shabby Tea Room where you had to create a card or project using HEARTS and any additional inspiration from the photo -- colors of pink, green, brown & neutral, doilies, polka dots, flowers, lace, ribbons. The Second is for this week's challenge at Create: blog to create Cards with border punches. Third is for Queen of Hearts challenge for Quietfire Designs. I used Very Vanilla textured paper from Stampin'Up and sponged the edges with Tim Holtz distress inks in Spun Sugar and Shabby Shutters. I then layered a piece of paper from Basic Grey 'Capella' line and sprayed with Vintage Pink and Key Lime from Tattered Angels glimmer mist. Then I sponged Victorian Velvet distress ink on the edges. I took another pattern paper from the same line and again sprayed with the same glimmer mist. I also ran Shabby Shutters over the edges to give it a distress look.I took the paper and along one side used a Martha Stewart punch called Lattice Heart Deep Edge punch.I layered that on top of the lace. I took a heart shape doily and sprayed it with Vintage Pink and Key Lime glimmer mist. On top of the first layer I added a Brushed Gold paper that was punched out using Garden Trellis a Martha Stewart punch. Then I layered green paper punched out using Lace Heart Edge punch from Martha Stewart on top of the gold. Then I wrapped Chantilly lace from Stampin'Up as shown and then took my white ribbon and sprayed with Vintage Pink glimmer mist. Attached it to the lace. On the left hand side I took another lacy ribbon from Maya Arts and layered that over the heart doily. Added a light green from Michael's over top. Cut out a heart using my Cricut machine from the cartridge called 'Love Struck' using My Mind's Eye 'Lush Pink Damask Paper as the base and using a piece from Basic Grey for the top which I sprayed Vintage Pink glimmer mist. The lady is an image from Tweety Jill Collection - Vintage Valentines and layered on spritz heart doily. The banner was cut out using my Cricut machine from the cartridge Reminisce Accents using Basic Grey 'Capella' and sponging green and pink distress inks. I stamped Lots of Love from Hero Arts using black pigment ink and black embossing powder.
