My Mind's Eye Blog Challenge #26 - Card

Hi, dear readers!  How have you been? Hope you're doing well :)  Have been down with something and been sick for like 4 days before i could get back to feeling a bit of my normal self.  After the 2nd day i've had fever and it went away for a while, i tried to push myself back to normalcy and so i did this card for My Mind's Eye Challenge #26.  The sweet details can be found *HERE*.  The theme this time is "Anything Goes" and i choose mine to be "Love."

And so without further ado, here's  what i came up with:

Here are some close-ups:

Made the flowers on the tag with the tea bag fold style, as with the card corners at the bottom.  There are lots of styles to be made using the tea bag folds and i gladly came upon them in one of the books i borrowed from the library ("Fabulous Folds for Card Making," Edited by Tanya Fox).

The sentiment and the heart stamps (as leaves on the tag flowers) are from the Lost and Found Two Breeze "Dreams" stamp set.   I like how the lines on the heart stamp somehow coordinate with the heart lines on the pink tags :)

Used Stickles to outline the elements on the card.

Materials used:
Patterned papers - Fine and Dandy Tickled Pink 6x6 pad;  trim - Stella and Rose; blings - Fine and Dandy True Blue Bling; stamps - Lost and Found Two Breeze; white cardstock; Martha Stewart punch; Stickles; Distress Ink; Helmar glue.

Thank you so much for visiting!  i really appreciate you dropping by :)  Please feel free to give any feedback :)

Have a wonderful day!
