Here is our schedule:

Today is my day to share!


I used an old pad of MME Lost & Found – Madison Avenue for the card base, distressing the edges and sponging a little bit of Antique Linen on the edges.

The heart and sentiment were stamped on white cardstock and embossed with Queens’ Gold Embossing Powders.  The heart was sponged with Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick, trimmed out and popped up on a mini tag that had also been covered in some scraps.


While the sentiment was still in the die, the edges were sponged with the same Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick.  The edges of both were trimmed with a gold leafing pen.

A frame (Labels Twenty-Nine) was made using chipboard and some of the MME paper, to highlight the sentiment.


The flower (Bitty Blossoms) was die cut from another piece of the same paper pad, sponged with Antique Linen, a bit of Worn Lipstick and then misted with water and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls.  The leaves (Foliage Two and Bitty Blossoms) were die cut from watercolor paper and then colored with Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Stain.  they were also misted with water and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls.


Well, that’s all for me today!  I hope you’re enjoying the hop and don’t forget to leave a comment in order to be eligible for the prize drawing.  Good luck!!
