i big sparkly heart you

i am so excited to share this card today!
i really love how it came out! :)

the curtain call is celebrating it's 1st year and the challenge is anything goes!! but they provided this amazing inspiration phot, and i just HAD to use it!!

in honor of all things 1st anniversary...newton's nook also HAD to be used! :) it's a perfect fit!

eek! i just love this!
i used embossing paste and a triangle stencil to create my background. then i stamped the roses and leaves from the love grows stamp set onto some patterened paper, which i jazzed up with some copic shading! :)

the heart and letter U are wood veeners and that i first made white with distress paints, and then once that was dry, added a thick layer of white stickles on top! wait, what? did you just read that right...? stickles? not wink of stella?! lol! well, for this card i really wanted CHUNKY glitter, so stickles called and i answered! :)

a few aqua enamel dots and a strip of aqua triangle-ed washi (to pull in the colors) and it was complete! i really LOVE how this turned out! :)

hope it makes you smile, and best case - gets you inspired!
