I Love You so Very Much!

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  I hope this posts find you having a glorious spring day!  The early part of our day was full of sunshine, but now it seems the clouds have decided to move on in.  Such is spring in Montana!!

I wanted to just write up a quick post today and share my CPS card, where we were sponsored by The Stamps of Life this week.  I have been envisioning a card using hearts in this manner, and it finally came together!  Here is what I created:
"I Love You so Very Much!" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (white) & Papertrey Ink (kraft) 
Paper/Jewels/Lace: Glitz Design (Beautiful Dreamer: polka, Pretty In Pink: ledger, toile, music, stripe & Happy Travels: planes, floral, stripe, bicycle)
Stamps: The Stamps of Life (quote2love set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: frost white)
Twine: My Mind's Eye
Pin: Maya Road
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Dies: My Favorite Things (hearts) & WPlus9 (banner)
Sewing Machine: Brother
Thread: Coats & Tails

Instructions: Make card from white cardstock, then round the bottom corners.  Diecut the hearts from different patterened papers, and adhere to the bottom of the card.  Zig-zag stitch through the middle of each row of hearts.  Wrap lace and twine directly above the hearts, tie a double bow from the twine, and then accent the middle with a jewel.  Diecut the banner from kraft cardstock, then stamp the sentiment to it.  Adhere it to the top of the card, then zig-zag stitch along the right side of it.  Thread a heart topped pin through the stitching on the sentiment banner.  Accent the banner and hearts with pink jewels to finish.

Card Challenges Used: 
-The Friday Mashup #52- colorful twine
-PaperCrafting Journey #6- photo inspiration
-Do You Stack Up #65- stitching

Well, that is everything I have to share right now.  I hope to see you check back tonight for the first post of this month's WPlus9 release!!  ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
