I Love You Forever and Always!

I'm back again today with another Valentine's day card! I'm rolling these out! I really love the way this one turned out! The customer who wanted me to make some Valentine cards for her wanted this one specially made for her husband. She is so sweet! As I was making this one and explaining that to my husband...he asked me where his was??...lol!

I had planned to link this up to "Mojo Monday" this week...I used the challenge sketch from last week. But I just didn't get it done in time. But I love this layout!

For my card I used my favorite "Lili of The Valley" stamp! She is super cute and she is called "Rosie Posy"! She get's lots of inky attention from me...lol! I have never done her in these colors before though and I really love the way it turned out! My customer wanted me to get the hair as blonde as possible because her hair color is super blonde!

I love adding charms to my cards and have been dying to use these cute little heart charms I've had in my bead stash! And the circle sentiments is one of my own! I made a set of gorgeous love sentiments awhile back! They can be found in my sentiment shop HERE!

I have used cardstock from DCWV and Colorbok. I want to give a special thank you to a couple different blogs for the DP I have used. The red heart patterned DP in the back is a digital download from "B. Nute Productions". The 'Love' word art DP is a digital download from "Paige and Brooke". And the gorgeous polkadot DP is from "Allison Kimball Designs".

For my dies, I have use Spellbinders opened scallops and circles. The little black acrylic pebbles are from stash as well as the red satin ribbon. The glittery hearts and 'Love" word are from "Recollections". And the rhinestone brad is from "Lush".

Continued the theme on the inside...I used a matching font for the Valentine sentiment.

You can find the love sentiments in my shop here...

  12. Hi Tracey,
    Wow...what a beautiful design. I absolutely love it :)
    Can I ask you...do you use a sewing machine when you sew on your designs?
    Reason I ask is cos no matter how much I practice on my machine..it never turns out like how I want it. You'll have to let me know the answer by coming to visit me at my blog lol. BTW, there is some blog candy there if you're interested :)
