It must be love

Here I am in my cosy craftroom and outside it is sunny, bright, frosty and currently -6 still at 10am, brrrr. Our challenge at Totally Gorjuss is Lurve and we are sponsored by the wonderful Crafter's Companion so you could win a £10 voucher to spend. I've made a rather different card for this one which was inspired by the wonderful Union Square paper from Michaels. I wanted to use the gorgeous sparkly word Love with the swirls so worked my card around that. It is an 8x8 card requested by a very special friend of mine. The bunting paper is from the same 12 x 12 sheet. I've used my wonderful Tim Holtz clock die again, cut from Core'dinations and weathered with DI Vintage Photo. The MS heart punch has been out again and I've used some gorgeous cream lace I bought at a show, cherry blossom from Wild Orchid with punched fern leaves and Jolee's Boutique metal scrolls. I really enjoyed making something without a stamped image for a change and I love the vintage look of this card.

I would like to enter this into the heart and love challenges at:
