Love is All 'Around'

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and I must admit that I had lofty plans to replenish my Etsy store and to start with cards for this special occasion. It didn't happen...life gets in the way sometimes and derails our plans. I've managed to make a few cards that I will post on Etsy, most are traditional and one is not. I'll post the traditional ones in my next post as I'm still working on them. I do have one that I'd like to post today as I'm entering this one in a challenge. This one could be used as a Valentine card or just a card to show you care. I made 2 and decided to use one for an upcoming birthday for a friend. Here's the link to the challenge blog I'm submitting it to. The Clear it Out blog looks really cool as their challenges involve a lot of clearing out our stashes. Love it! The challenge was to either make a circular card or to involve circles in some fashion. Clear It Out Challenge

10 Embellishments Challenge

I made this card to enter into the "Use 10 Embellishments Challenge in the Moxie Fab World" for PaperCrafts Magazine. Here is the link: Moxie Fab World
Apart from using well over 10 flowers I also used white lace, blue ruffle trim, cardstock diecut, glitter diecut frame, metal edged bird diecut, stick pin, blue twisted paper rope, twine and a button. I don't think I could've fit anymore on this card do you? As always let me know what you think.
