Not quite sure . . .

. . if I'm 100% sure that this card is balanced or maybe it's just too neat for me!!!

Over at Polka Doodles this week we have the theme "That's Amore" but the twist is to create your project with a Love Song in mind ! Uuuummmmm . . . not a "love song" sort of person so struggled to think of a lovey dovey song that I liked and having no working printer at the moment frustrated me further! Well after looking through my "toones" on the computer, finally decided on "Truly, Madly, Deeply" by Savage Gardens. If your not sure what it sounds like, check out this link on You Tube . .

I have used the ever so versatile baroque style stamp from the "Daisy Doodles" collection to create all my detail; the border strips & the lickle toppers. A little embossing, velvet ribbon and shocking pink vellum add a touch of texture to the card along with some gems and metal staples (used as hangers)! Decorative edges created with a Martha Stewart punch and sentiment using Doodlebug rub-ons.

A quick, simple card and am falling in love with Kraft Card all over again . . . could you guess . . ! I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Flutter by Wednesday's - use at least 3 hearts
A Spoon Full of Sugar - "let's see some love"
Papertake Weekly - "Have a heart"
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - "hearts gone wild"

OK . . have a busy day today as we're off to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to have a nose around and then join in some Greek themed workshops.

Have a great Friday everyone,

Gorgeous card Lou and I can't tell you how much I love that stamp! It's my favourite from the set and never gets put away.

Well, I absolutely adore it! It is a little out of character for you, but I think it is beautifully balanced. If I ever bought cards (which I don't!), this would scream at me from the shelves.
It is perfect! Love it!

A beautiful card, although I'm not spying a butterfly, fairy or angel to let it qualify for my flutter by challenge but it is a beautiful card!
