The Heart has it's Reasons --Quietfire

Since it's such a stormy day I've been spending the afternoon in my craft room playing with my new stamps that I won on Quietfire Blog Hop recently . I was so excited to find out that I had won on 2 of the blogs. I didn't own any of their stamps but always loved what I saw made with them by their Design Team . Here's a card I made today with one of them , I love this verse. The verse was stamped in Versafine  onyx  and cut out with SB Radiant Rectangle dies while still in the die I sponged around the edge with Victorian Velvet DI . I layered this on the largest die from the same set .  I stamped the edges of the pink c/s with TH flourish stamp in CTMH Cashmere and then sponged with Victorian Velvet DI then distressed the edge with my paper distresser. the hearts are Cheery Lynn dies   .The bow was made from seam binding sponged with Victorian Velvet DI . The flower which I made a while ago  was laying on my desk so thought it was the right size for the center of the bow .  Of course I love bling so I just had to add a touch to the hearts.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Ohhh, I really like this card Marilyn. Those dies are so lacy which adds to the feminine design, along with your colours and the bow. Great verse stamp to win - you will find lots of use for it.
