love you

I've started to make my Valentine cards:) Totally felt inspired by this sketch from Cardabilities, you can play along HERE.



Really Reasonable Ribbon's latest challenge is #16 Heart Theme, you can play along HERE


Here is my card:


Here I go embossing again!!! It is the first thing I think to do all the time LOL!! I was able to purchase some seam binding and make some crinkle ribbon...I dyed it with my Tim Holtz fired brick re-inker.

Supplies:
Stamps: Impression-Obsession CC027 Flourishes, Hero Arts CL301 Hugs & Hearts, S5216 Grid Pattern, and PTI Simple Valentine set.
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress inks in worn lipstick and Fired Brick.
Embossing powder: ZING white
Misc: PTI felt in poppy red, hand made/died crinkle ribbon :)
die: Spellbinders Lacey Squares

THanks for stopping by for a visit!!!
Hugs,
TRace

Love that fabulous heart bouquet ... I'm an embossing addict as well ... I bought some seam-binding, but need to find some time to die it ... this vibrant red rocks.

You really ARE into embossing, huh? I don't blame you, it's my favorite technique! I wish I had some more colored powders. ;) Your card is absolutely gorgeous too.
