Truly Scrumptious #24

Another valentines card and this one is a bit bright and features me using green again!!!! The layout of the card is a sketch from Truly Scrumptious which I chose fr the starting point to fit this sentiment panel into. All the papers are from Creative cardmaking magazines and the sentiment is a vellum one from this mag which I ran through the Xyron and stuck to white card.

I have used the heart blocks embossing folder from Cuttlebug and distressed with a little black ink pad. I have used a Sizzix die to cut the file tab and added a small sentiment from the paper pack. The paper heart is from the pack anf the small red 3d one is a Paperchase sticker. Last but not least I have layered Prima flowers with some bead caps courtesy of Ebay and a couple of Papermania brads. Vix from Crafty Cardmakers uses beadcaps a lot on her cards so I had a mooch on Ebay and bought some, they do look really effective and add a lot of dimension to the flowers.

This card incorporates the following challenges :-

Another gorgeous card Mandy, the colour's are so unusual for the theme but they are really lovely and work so well...
I love the file tab and all the other element's you used.

It is a bit wierd knowing I will see my first DT card tommorrow, but I really do enjoy taking part in your challenge, you girl's have come up with some of my favourite challenges and alway's make me push my crafting ability a bit further, and when Vix asked me to join, well I was over the moon....just hope I can do the job...as sometimes I get so nervous that I can't seem to make anything...my mojo does a runner...lol
