Lavender and Teal Love Card

I am very happy with the beautiful Lavender and Teal colors on this card.

The original inspiration for this project came from 
Mojo Monday's Challenge #274 - Round or Square,
 but then I saw the suggested colors of 
Gold, Teal, Mint and/or Lavender on Play Date Cafe's  blog. 
This is a new blog for me and 
once I completed the card - I realized
 the challenge had expired. 
 Oh well, it gave me a great color combination to start with.

 I just begain the 365 Challenge and forget that I have to make a card daily. 
 I popped on to their blog to see that I needed something for the 
Day 2 - Be Mine, Valentine 
(create a card for this challenge that has the 
word "LOVE" and least one HEART on it).

I had originally stamped a "Heavenly Wishes" sentiment on this card and then restamped it (YUCK).  I didn't like this so I thought I'd try the sentiment on a circle and didn't like this either.  I did a little rearranging to block out the original stamp,

 die cut the word LOVE 

and  moved the "heart" (i.e. my interpretation of their layout by necessity).

When I saw that today's challenge on 365  cards - Day 3 - 
Layered needed a minimum of 5 layers
 I thought I would add this one, as well. 
 I'm not sure if each challenge has to be a separate card, so 
I will make another tonite for 365 - just in case.  
Better to err on the side of caution!

I cut 3 layers of alternating 
lavender and teal cardstock with the Spellbiners A-2 "B" dies

I distressed them with Ranger's Distress stains in Metallic Brushed Pewter and Peacock Feathers.

Embossed with a Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder and inked with a Ranger Distress Ink in Peacock Feather

A little more embossing for the lavender with a Just My Type dotted swiss folder and some limited edition Color Box Pigment stamp pad in Ice to give it a little "bling".

I have bunches of ribbon and lace (a gift from my wonderful Mom - Thanks, Mom!) and I inked some with a purple ink pad I found in my stash.  Added a small layer of teal
"corsage" ribbon and a bow.

The flower die cuts are from the Best Images of 2006 - Cricut.  
When ever I have to cut my dies, I make certain to make extra so that they are already done for another project.  

The bling is just WalMart acryllic jewels.

I hope you are having a TERRIFIC THURSDAY!
