Addicted to Love

Hello!  This week Vicki from "Stamp Smiles" challenged us to make a card with a love theme and also  to use on our projects what items were addicted to in the paper crafting industry.   Well I'm kinda known around these parts for owning a lot of paper.  I have so much designer paper, I doubt I'll even use it all up in my lifetime.  It's just so pretty, I can hardly contain myself when I see a new DCWV pad come out.  So I'm addicted to paper!  The paper I used to make this for this week's Flashback Friday Challenge is from a DCWV pad called 'Tres Chic'.  It is a romantic paper pad filled with Parisian elements.  I used a retired digi for my main image (sorry, I can't remember who's digi it is) and a sketch from MFT (MFTWSC137)

 Because I didn't want to cover up the main image, I used a strip of vellum to make my banner and adhered a die cut from Taylored Expressions onto the vellum.  The flower die was cut using the same dp from the pad with an MFT die.  I adhered two little die cut hearts (from the same Taylored Expression die cut set) onto the card for extra embellishment.
 The black scallop behind the main image panel was cut with an MFT die.

This card will be given to a lovely couple at my church who are celebrating an anniversary this month, but I also think it would be appropriate for Valentine's Day, or anyone you want to share some love with.

If you'd like to play this week's Flashback Friday, there's still time.  Go HERE for more info.

Have a great day! Amy
