With Love

Here's another Valentine for you. This one is very dimensional, although the scanner did flatten it somewhat. I started with a stamp from Outlines Rubber Stamps called Whimsical Blossom. I thought is was rather lacey looking and would look great on a Valentines card. I stamped it several times and cut out each layer. I adhered the layers to each other with foam dots. Over the top layer I adhered some die cut hearts which had been covered with glass bead gel. The challenge theme at Outlines Rubber Stamps is Follow Your Heart.
This card follows the sketch challenge at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog seen at the left. I'd like to say congratulations to Critter Sketch on reaching their 100th challenge posting. There's a blog hop going on now to celebrate.
This card also meets the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge which is a love recipe -- word love(s) hearts, lace, and the colors red, pink, and white. (I hope my lacey background and flower qualify for the lace.)
