To Love and Be Loved

Today I'm sharing a Valentine's card I designed with Graciellie's newly released Floral Heart and Banner's Digital Stamp Set.
To create my 3D easel card I printed the heart digi once and then cropped and printed one of the blooms eight times. I colored both with Touch Five markers and added some highlights with a white gel pen. In the center of the eight individual blooms  I glued a pretty pearl before shaping and gluing them over the main image.
I wanted to keep the background fairly plain to showcase the beautiful floral heart, so I added only an embossed piece of cardstock and a wide strip of lace. The sentiment is from the same digital set, I simply re-styled it to fit the label die I wanted to use.
 Supplies and Tools:
Dies: Labels 4 Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
Embellishments: Pearls, White Lace
Embossing Folders: Circular Grid (Anna Griffin)
Ink: Touch Five Markers, White Gel Pen
Stamps: Floral Heart and Banner's Digital Stamp Set (Graciellie Design)

Esther, your card is stunning, seriously! Those flowers are beautiful. Until I looked close I thought the centers were gold embossed, the yellow coloring is so vibrant. Thank you for sharing your creation with us this week at our Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

Aww, such gorgeous flowers. Great job on coloring too. We're so blessed that you joined us with your wonderful art last Challenge. We would like to invite you to link with us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving some inspiration from the Word of God in John 4:14 n which Jesus said, "But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a fount of water springing up to eternal life." Have a wonderful and blessed week.
