LOC Let Your Love Shine

It is our Wedding Anniversary tomorrow 18 years on October 18 and I have made this card for my DH...I have had to post it late in the evening after he has gone to bed as I didn't want him to see it.

 I used the Layers of Color sets Fleur Heart and Gothic Crosses.  The Fleur Heart was embossed with white embossing powder onto DP, the then sponged it with three different colour inks ranging from a mustard to dark brown.  I tore round the edges in a square and then sponged them until they were quite dark.

The top DP has been embossed with the Victoria EF and sponged around the edges with Distressing Ink.  The lower DP has been torn along the top edge and sponged.  These have been mounted onto creme CS.  The crosses from Gothic Crosses have been cut out with a circle punch and then coloured with chalks, adding some highlights with a Gold Gel Pen and then Kindy Glitz is lightly added to the leaves and circle - it has also been added to the emboss resist Fleur heart.  The circles have been popped up on Dimensionals.  Dew Drops have finished off the card.

This card is for the Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge which is now back after having to take a break for unexpected reasons - so hop on over there are show them some support - they are a great group of girls who bring us a fabulous challenge each week!!

I am excited to be able to share with you that Layers of Color is releasing 9 new sets of stamps very soon - and they are having their first Release Party - get your diaries out and mark it in - November 14 and 15.  It is so exciting - You know I love their stamps and find them such a pleasure to work with - these new sets will compliment the already exisiting ones, which is even better - so...keep watching this space and check back at Layers of Color between now and then!!

I am going to be working hard on cards for the Release Party, along with the other DT's, (it's a tough job but somebodies got to do it! LOL!) so please bear with me if my posts are not quite as regular...I will be doing my best to do work you can see, but may not be able to post each day - we will see - you know me - complusive!! LOL!
