SSIC LOC Fleur Heart

It was wonderful to see so many of you playing along at last weeks at the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. We love to visit with you and see all of the 'works of the heart'

This weeks challenge is brought to you by Kris, who has chosen

 "Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man."
Proverbs 3:3-4

Kris has challenged us to make a heart stand out in your card/project

I have used the divine Fleur Heart from Layers of Color using Tsukineko Sepia Versafine Ink - this was one of the first stamps that caught my eye when I discovered Layers of Color - I love it just as much today.

along with the Merci Bouquet and Christmas Blessings to create a Shabby Hand Stamped background.

The sentiment from the Fairy Wishes Clear art stamp set has been popped up on foam tape in the middle - I love the effect this gives....along with the added shabbiness of the gorgeous trim

It all comes together to create a card for a lovely lady who has requested a special card for her Grandmother's birthday - I am hoping she likes it!

This card is for the following challenges:
Craft Your Days Away - Distressing
Marks Finest Papers - Birthday Card
Sugar Creek Hollow - Vintage, Shabby Chic or Primitive - Go Girly
Clearly Inspired - Pastels
Hotshot Crafts – Flowers (on background DP and Fleur Heart)
Simply Create Too - Love is in the Air
Craft Us Crazy - Valentine/Love and/or Animals

Crop Stop - Distressed, Vintage or Shabby Chic
Shelly's Images - Anything Goes

  9. you are a craftin genius! this is gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!beautiful arrangement using different stamp sets...

  10. Linda... this is sooo LOVELY in every way!! I really adore the soft pinks and delicate details on here. Cute pompom ribbon and pearls are a perfect touch. I grabbed this heart stamp at first too and colored it up and cut it out and then got lost. Wasn't liking how it was coming together and I'm really glad I didn't go with it because it would be so unworthy compared to yours. Not that we should compare... but kinda hard not to when 2 people use the same stamp ;) You are so incredibly talented with this set--and you really live up to your name, Lovely Linda *Ü* Have a blessed week.

  11. Oh Linda this is amazing - I love the way you have so subtly coloured the heart, and made the background and raised the sentiment, and that trim with the added pearls - you would never guess I think this is a masterpiece???

  12. Beautiful details, lovely card. Thanks for playing with us at Simply Create Too.
