Love Grows

Happy Monday, all! =) Here is the card that I posted over at the poppystamps blog today.

For all the details on this card, please visit this post. Don't forget about the Kanji Sale, too! =)

I joined the Valentine Card swap that the sweet Anita organized over a the Hero Arts Flickr Group. Here is the card that I sent to Jenny (maker sure you visit Jenny's blog, she is so very talented!).

I used the super sweet Love Grows from Lili of the Valley for my card. Don't you just love this image? It's so sweet! I am also submitting this card to the current Romance challenge over at the Lili of the Valley Challenge Blog.

I applied some white Enamel Accents to the dots on the girl's dress and the pot. I really love the texture and dimension that the Enamel Accents gives! So fun! The sentiment came with this stamp. The patterned paper is from the Thrift Shop collection by October Afternoon.

I used the Fancy Heart Border Die from Whiff of Joy Stamps for the cute edge. The seam binding is dyed with barn door distress ink.

That's all I have for now. Have a fantastic day, my friends! =)
