To Love and Be Loved and Purge Hop Winner's Day!

I have  a quick sort of shabby chic card to share today. I am using Verve's Feel the Sun, Tag Time, Text Object, and the newly released Wings of Love sets.  I also used Wavy Hearts and Rectangle Tag dies.  I combined the images with some Authentique Uncommon designer papers.  I outlined the wings with a Sakura gel pen for some added sparkle.  I added a fun postage stamp edge using Spellbinder's Book Pages 2.  I finished with a few tiny silver pearls and a soft gray seam binding bow ties around my double layered rectangle tags.  

Winner's Day!

  12. What i do not realize is in reality how you're not actually a lot more well-favored than you may be right now. You're very intelligent. You realize thus significantly when it comes to this subject, made me in my opinion believe it from so many various angles. Its like women and men don't seem to be interested until it is one thing to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs nice. All the time handle it up!
