The Stampsmith Floral Alphabet Love Card

Hi Dreamers!
It is totally all about "Love" in Dreamland this week!  On today's card, I spelled out the word LOVE with letters from The Stampsmith's Floral Alphabet.  I added all kinds of pretty embellishments fit for a heartfelt Valentine's Day card.

The letters were stamped with brown ink on pink CS.  I added some color to the letters with markers.
I die cut a heart (A Muse Studios) from Velum.  

The doily was hand cut to fit on top of the velum heart.  I used the rest of the doily on the bottom of the card. 

I added some red satin ribbon and some tiny rhinestone hearts (A Muse Studios).  And what would a Valentine's Day card be without lots of pearls??!!  

So, I like how this turned out.  Again, an example of how you can make a Valentine's Day card with everyday stamps.  This would be pretty with a name instead of Love too.

And, now a few Heart inspired Challenges!!
