love YOU

Hi everyone!  I'm popping in this morning to share the card I made for my second week as Artist of the Month over at Our Craft Lounge.  I'm a tad delayed in posting (okay, a little more than a tad) due to a work trip to San Antonio, so please forgive my tardiness.  Hopefully you were able to check out my project on the OCL blog and this is a repeat!  I had the pleasure of working with a lovely set called Love Notes.  Check it out:
I plan on using this set again, so keep an eye out for more fun projects ;]  I have a TON of ideas for this set...just not enough time in the day to bring them to fruition all at once.  For my card, I used one of my newest paper packs over at My Time Made Easy called Island Love.  Now, I realize I also released a more traditional Valentine/love color palette for this paper, but I wanted to go against the grain of what's expected.  So, I stuck with the pretty Pool Party, Calypso Coral and white palette. I created a double frame if you will to bring the focus to my script panel.  If you look closely you'll see that I first stamped the "shaded" background in Soft Sky and then embossed the script in white on top.  I highlighted the last word in the script, "love" to draw the eye to the first word in my sentiment. 
I added some white, frilly trim layered with some teal seam binding and a coral bloom, then adhered the second word in my sentimet, "YOU".  Hot glue is my adhesive of choice when I play with blooms, so I just tucked my tag in while it was still hot.  I added some antique brass SU! brads to finish the look and I was done!

I'm having such a great time using my OCL goodies and sharing them on their blog.  I'm still very honored to represent OCL as their Artist of the Month ♥  I'll have another project to share on the OCL blog tomorrow!  I might wait a day or two to share on my blog just to break it up a bit since this post was so late.  Hope your new year is off to a wonderful start.  I know I'm inspired by the possibilities and have a great feeling that this year is going to be amazing.

All the best ♥
