LOC The Greatest Love

I have been itching to get back to my Layers of Color stamps and the CCEE Stampers Challenge is the perfect opportunity- their challenge is all about hearts!!  How could I resist this gorgeous heart from the  Renaissance Hearts art stamp set that I have coloured with chalks and cut around the image popping it up onto an embossed panel (hearts again) with foam tape.

A light touch of Kindy Glitz has been added to just capture the light and give it some shimmer and silver pearls have been added to the corners and under the heart.

I have used this scripture that was sent to me in a RAK from my dear friend (and boss) Laura from Layers of Colour, this is actually a sticker and was great to use- thanks Laura - I loved using it and you can except some more scripture card with them on. 

I also added a strip of the gorgeous recycled lace, I think this is my favourite of all the laces I have used, it is so elegant.  I added the silver bling to the center of each flower on the lace, these have got a lovely aged shimmer to them and IRL have the card an 'antique' look.  Both the DP and the embossed panel have been distressed.

I love it then a card comes together easily and have always found that with Layers of Color - the stamps inspire me and that is what it is all about for me!

I have realised when linking this card to the CCEE Stampers that I left off the charm - oops - could I get away with it by calling this card 'charming' LOL!
