With Valentines quickly approaching I am sure there is one last card that needs to be made. Create a project based on Love. It does not have to be Valentine related. It can be just because you love someone.

Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creations HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB19. You have until February 29th to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!

For my card I chose The roses from A Year in Flowers 2. The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on  Neenah Solar White cardstock. I had received the new Copic colors on Saturday and had to use them right away to color my roses (Flowers: RV10, RV52 new, RV55, RV66    Leaves: G40, G43 new, G46 new).

A piece of MME Lost & Found 2 Blush Patterned Paper was cut and embossed with a Classic Heart Nestabilities. The inside of the heart was sponged with Antique Linen and the heart was stitched to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with a  Classic Scalloped Heart. The rose image was cut out and adhered with with dimensionals to the right hand side of the hearts. Part of a Finesse Pearl Swirl was adhered to the left side of the heart.

A sentiment from the stamp set April Showers was stamped on a piece of cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag die. The inner part of the tag was sponged with Antique Linen distress ink and part of the rose image was stamped over the left hand side of the tag. The sentiment layer was adhered partly under the flower and over the heart.

Two 4 1/8″ wide strips of Blush Paper were adhered to a 4 1/8″ square of the same paper pack. The edges of the paper were sanded before the layers were stitched to a 4 3/8″ square of Kraft cardstock. Ivory Organdy Ribbon was tied around the layers vertically before the heart and sentiment were adhered to the card front with dimensionals. Everything was adhered to the card base; white cardstock cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. Three pearls on the lower right corner finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to participate in the challenge this month!
Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
