February is a very busy month for my family - 4 Birthdays, Valentines' Day and it's also our Wedding Anniversary! With love as our theme this month, I thought what is more iconic than red roses!! This beautiful Rose Heart is from the recent release called Hearts & Flowers. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (R32, R35, R37, R39) and then added subtle sparkle with a Clear Spica. I then cut it out and attached it to a fan fold flower (white spritzed with Wheat Fields Glimmer Mist). The base is made up of red, white (pierced) and River Rock card and topped with some MME Lush DP. I then embossed another piece of River Rock with the Floral and Stone Impressabilities (the embossing comes out AMAZING on my new Grand Calibur!!!!). The sentiment is also from Hearts & Flowers (and says I Love You!) and I've made it into a notched tag and slipped it under the Heart panel. Finally I added some red ZVA roses in the corner and accented with some ZVA pearl flourishes and also added some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners.
