Simply Love

Hello Classy Friends, Diane with you today!
This week our challenge theme is Letter It, meaning, using the inspiration photo, add a letter/or letters to your project.


I have to say, even though I was the one that chose this challenge, it made me put my thinking cap on!! I originally had intended to use the flowers as my lettering, being they were made with Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 6 x 6 paper  that had words/lettering on it.  But, after making the flowers using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, I decided to nix that idea as you had to look real hard to see the letters!!


Speaking of the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, did you know they are on sale? Check it out, as the price is fabulous, and the dies are fabulous as well, when you need a quick flower! The leaves of the roses are from the same die set, and were cut using Champaign Neenah Pearlized Metallic paper.

I used designer paper from the gorgeous New Joy! Crafts 6 x 6 paper pad called Sweet Wedding for the base of my card. I added a piece of real lace from my stash and built my card up from that.

After adding the Roses, I tucked a cute little Impression Obsession Birdhouse set behind. The butterflies are  Joy! Crafts Fantasy Butterflies and cut from a piece of the same Sweet Wedding paper pad as above.

The word Love is a CLD die, but did you know that if you applied Scor-tape Double Sided Adhesive sheet behind your paper before cutting, then, all you have to do is peel off the backing and stick it on? That is what I did, using Echo Bronze Stardream Metallic for my word.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I would love to have you join in our challenge with us, there is always a fabulous prize. Tell your friends, too!

Thanks for stopping by!!! Until next time...
