Happy Valentine's Day

 Hello bloggers!  I selected a piece of pink Pixied card for the background.  I used Candy Pink Pixie Powder for it.  I cut the Layered Heart Background into it and backed it with a piece of white vellum.  I lifted all the little pieces and added small black pearls to the centres of each of them.  I used the Double Stitched Squares and made a multi-layered frame using a wider white vase and a thinner black frame on top.  I added it with mounting foam over the heart background.  I cut the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment in black and glued it to the inside of the heart aperture.  I added three small flowers as accents cut from the left over pixied card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, what a beautiful creation, I am loving the pink, it really sparkles with what looks like mica when the light catches it and the little black gems on each flower really makes them pop, yes I am liking this a lot.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Morning Sue - what a gorgeous card - so pretty. I love how the pieces in the background can be lifted to make it really 3D and with more texture. The little flowers finish it off perfectly! Colleen xx

Hi Sue. What a lovely, tasteful Valentine's Card today. I love that background and think it would be really lovely with other shapes in the centre, if you didn't want to use a heart, for any other occasion.

Hi Sue, a very pretty card. I love the use of vellum behind the background and the little black pearls on the flowers. I would love a similar background die but without the central aperture.

I really don't understand why I'm not getting the notifications every time you add a new card, really strange, which is why I missed this one but Wow it's beautiful, love the pink too, as yet I still haven't used this die but I do plan on doing so very soon for both my friends 45th anniversary card and also for my hubby when it's our anniversary too, this collection is perfect for many occasions not just valentines.

Just spectacular and so beautiful! Those little pearls in the center of the flowers really add that something extra. I LOVE this one!

This design is very pretty and can be used for different occasions by changing the sentiment only. Thank you for the inspiration, Sue.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
