from the heart 42

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, February 2, 2014 @ 10:01 PM | , ,

Hello! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! Thanks to all who joined along with last week's challenge! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I’ve got love letters on my mind. Will you make a card with heart? Create a journal entry about someone (or something) you love? Perhaps use vintage postage as your latest inspiration… whatever inspires you – we can’t wait to see your love notes!

I was inspired to create a shabby chic Valentine's Day card. I combined pretty Melissa Frances patterned paper with a sentiment from Tim Holtz's Simple Sayings. For added texture and design, I embossed a piece of Butter Cream cardstock using the Honeycomb Texture Fade Embossing Folder:
My focal point is a beautiful die cut heart that I embellished with a Crinkle Ribbon bow and a Bitty Blossom.
Many thanks for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
