Be Mine...

This isn't what I envisioned when I started out with my design. Just sort of evolved as I went along. *rolling eyes* Anywho...

It all began with my Stampin' Up! large oval punch and this gorgeous "Sweetheart" 12 x 12 Diecuts With A View paper coming together to form flower petals. Stampin' Up! baroque burgundy cardstock for the card base, Stampin' Up! pretty in pink cardstock run through the Ellison Big Shot using the Cuttlebug A2 heart blocks embossing folder. Flower center embossed using Stampin' Up! Silver Detail EP, VersaMark and Kolette Hall Circle of Love stamp (Michael's dollar spot) on Stampin' Up! baroque burgundy, rose romance & pretty in pink cardstock. Layers were cut using a Coluzzle. Flower stem was cut freehand from Stampin' Up! certainly celery, stamped with Stampin' Up! Paisley background in Stampin' Up! old olive ink. Be Mine sentiment was punched using Stampin' Up! Word Window and a silver heart brad was added. Layers were added accordingly using dimensionals. Voila!

I like the results... however, you be the judge... simply post a comment. When designing a card, I never start with any particular method or same starting point. My designs could be inspired by ribbon, paper, color combination, layout or tool... such as my large oval punch in this instance.
I look forward to our next visit. Until then...

This is a pretty card, Anne! I like what you did with the oval punch and the Cuttlebug background is great, as always (I'm almost obsessed with those embossing folders these days... can't seem to make a card without using them!).
Thanks for sharing!

I didn't come to sign up for a prize, I came because I saw Your card on the FeedBlitz. Very creative card. I need to get some folders to use with my Sissix,you are an enabler.
