For my card I am using Stronger Love set, Scroll Plain Jane and Flourished Trim and Scroll Dies.  I also used Verve's Small Phrases stamp set, too, to build a sentiment in my stamped framed scroll die.  I stamped the sentiment, softly sponged around the edges, and added the heart that comes in the set.  I had to add some sparkle. 

Next, I stamped the scroll once with ivory card stock and once in black.  The black I cut down the center the long way to give me a mat/frame detailing for my scroll.   I also stamped the tiny dotted heart flourished image with these sentiments.  Again, I added some sparkle.   I  layered the new Flourished Trim die over my seam binding to give added contrast.   I finished with seam binding bow and heart charm! 


I am also playing along with Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary 2012 Challenges Day 2. 
Moe is the host! She challenges us to make an Anniversary 
card using metal or wood since those are 5 year Anniversary gift 
ideas. I added a little metal heart charm!


I am using this week's SCS Color Combo Challenge CC389! Bravo Regal Starfruit! Check out the link for more details and to find out what the dessert option is all about!   My card also uses Deconstructed Sketch No. 64.   I did opt for an A2 size.
