Your Love

              Happy Valentin's Day!!

 Wow!  I am so excited to be Guest Designer in The Shabby Tea Room this week!!!!

            The theme this week is "Keeping Warm"  Just look at those cozy blankets!

    For my card, I knew I wanted to add lots of texture and layers 
     And because today is Valentine's Day, it needed a great big heart!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hope you have a sweet day!!

Congratulations, Michelle, on the guest design spot! This is lovely! Can you explain how you achieved the ruffled edge around the heart? It's lovely!

Hey Lin! It's a large paper flower, I cut the petals off and glued them to the back of the flower. I used two flowers.
Thanks Lin!
