I Love the Person You Are

Hello Everyone!!!  I hope you all had a wonderful start to 2010!!!  I don't know about you, but I swear each year gets faster and faster!!!  :)

Today's card was inspired by this week's Caardvarks Sketch which is being sponsored by JustRite!!!!  Not only do you have the chance to win the two brand new releases, Romantic Sentiments and Loving Thoughts, but ALSO a $100 gift voucher from JustRite!!!!!  If you can't wait to see if you've won, both the new sets are available to ship from JustRite on Monday Jan 4!!!!  I decided to use the brand new Romantic Sentiments to make this card in preparation for Valentine's Day, because it will be here before I know it!!  :)

I started with a base of deep pink bazzill and layered with a lighter pink and some Basic Grey Bittersweet DSP.  I then added more lighter pink, with one side punched with the MS Floral Lace punch and topped with more Bittersweet DSP.  Through the middle I attached some May Arts ribbon and added a bow made with my Bow Easy.  The focal panel has been made using the Label 1 Nestabilities (in Very Vanilla) and the Fleur de Lis Pendant set (in deep pink bazzill).  Popped on top of that I stamped with Romantic Sentiments in Rose Red and cut out with Small Circle Nestabilities.   I finished off by adding some Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the top corner.

Stamp - Romantic Sentiments (JustRite)
Paper - Deep pink and light pink bazzill, Basic Grey Bittersweet DSP
Ink - Rose Red
Accessories - Label 1 Nestabilities, Fleur de Lis Pendant Shapeabilities, Small Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Floral Lace Punch, May Arts Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
