Love You...

Now I don't usually make Valentine's Day cards but I have certainly been inspired by the following challenges today:

Allsorts Challenge Blog - clean and simple 
My Time To Craft - love is all around
Just Us Girls - valentine
Less Is More - white on  white
Inkspirational - photo inspiration

Using some lovely linen textured card and some clear gems I created this:

I made the letters in Publisher and cut them out with a craft knife. The heart is die cut and I created a bling border using gems. I've mounted these with foam pads on a trellis embossed panel. The gem theme is continued with stick on letters.

I must also wish a happy 5th birthday to Less is More - where has the time gone? Their challenges often brighten my Saturdays and the design team past and present is made up of some of the most talented CAS card makers I've seen in blogland.

Thanks for visiting
