Finally a post! I have been busy all week with a wonderfully large purchase from Etsy so I haven't had much time to make any other cards or posts! But that order is finally done, so I'm back!
This card turned out so fabulous! I just can't stop looking at it, it's so pretty :)
I embossed the pink background with my D'vine Swirls embossing folder and the white frame around the cross with the Swiss Dots folder. The frames around the cross are cut from my trusty Lacy Labels cartridge! I had planned on putting sunburst type accents around the cross but I think this frame worked pretty well since it has a spiked edge.
The cross is cut from the Wedding Solutions cartridge. The top layer is a white glitter paper. I really wanted the cross to shine, so that was the point of the glitter paper. Then I cut out a pink heart, added some glossy accents and clear glitter so it also sparkled, and placed it in the middle of the cross.
On to the flowers! Those lilies gave me such a headache!
The roses are dusted with some pink chalk and then glittered.
As I said before, I just love this card!!
I've entered this card in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday #227
Fantabulous Cricut #97-Love is in the Air

Some of these challenges are for "Love" projects, which at this time of year would represent Valentine's Day. But to me the cross represents the greatest love of all! So even though it is Valentine's Day soon, the cross will always be the greatest symbol of LOVE in my life!
Thanks for stopping by!
