Keep Me In Your Heart
It's late, and I always struggle with night time pictures, but I wanted to get this posted. Tomorrow I have to work on valentines for my boys - that ought to make me choose a color other than pink - LOL!! I have to admit though, I love a man who feels comfortable with pink... anyway, I digress. This card is for Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday #73. Ever since I got this wonderful Verve set (aren't they all so incredibly wonderful???), Hundred Hearts, I have been wanting to emboss this hearts border and use it for a frame. This week's Mojo Monday Sketch really lent itself to that idea. I pretty much used the sketch as is for my card - even the colors, which is kind of funny - with just a couple of changes. I love this sentiment so much, and I love the filigree heart from Verve's Hearts on Fire stamped in light pink behind it. The base of the card is Whisper White, topped with a layer of Basic Black. I used SU's Raspberry Tart DSP AGAIN for the background for my beautiful embossed heart frame... I can't help myself. The hearts border is embossed with Versa Mark and White Embossing powder on basic Black card stock, cut out and fashioned into a frame. The sentiment is stamped with Classic black ink and the filigree heart is stamped with Pretty In Pink ink. The 5/8" Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon is adhered with Sticky Tape. White Taffeta Ribbon is tied around that and secured with a Euphoria Collection Designer Glazed Brad from Basic Grey. I pierced a border around the card to add a little dimension. Thanks for stopping by!
