Especially for You

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  It is a lovely Saturday morning here in the Nations Capital and I have been enjoying some Studio time - I have a pretty card to share with you using some of my 'staple' and favourite products - it doesn't get much better than that! 

The card front has been cut/embossed using pink card stock and one of my favourite Spellbinders Dies - Nestabilities Romantic Rose Etched Dies and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform This has been popped up onto the pre-cut card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

Next Frame #1 from Nestabilities Romantic Rose Etched Dies the using white card stock has been cut/emboss and popped up onto the layered card front; followed by a pink oval from the Nestabilities Fancy Edged Ovals Etched Dies.

The Sentiment is from the Little Birdie Crafts  Handmade Embellishments - it is pre-cut and popped up on foam squares - it does not get much easier than that!  I have also used Little Birdie Crafts Flowers and a Butterfly.  

I have added HEARTY ME'LANGE CRIMSON HEARTS to the butterfly using liquid glue and adhered it to the side of the flowers.  Small Pink Pompom trim has been adhered below the sentiment and finished off with some Want2Scrap 250 Count White Pearls
