Juliet in Love with The Stampsmith

Hi Dreamers!
I am back with more Valentine's Day inspiration!  This card features the lovely Juliet from The Stampsmith Stamps.  I wanted to show how you can use a non-Valentine stamp to make a beautiful Valentine's day card.

To make the heart, I stamped Rose Background (also from The Stampsmith) on white CS with pink pigment ink multiple times.  Then die cut the heart (from A Muse Studios) from the stamped CS.   Stamp Juliet with black dye ink.

Glue the heart to  light pink CS.  Wrap the sheer ribbon around the CS.  Cut another piece of the ribbon and tie in a knot around the ribbon wrapped around the CS.  Glue this unit to a dark pink card base.  Add the pearls and laces.  Die cut the word love (from A Muse Studios).

Some lovely challenges for the lovely Juliet:
Challenges 4 Everybody: anything goes
No Matter Which: ribbons and bows
Glitter N sparkle: girls
Sentimental Sundays: love is in the air
Ink on my fingers: love and hearts
Mark's finest: love

Are you making any Valentine's Day cards this year?  I have made a ton and sent most out for the hospitalized children's card drive.  I made a few extra cards that I will send and/or give out.  My hubby will get one and I will send out a few others.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend and find time to make some cards!  Love ya.
