Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful (BBB19)!

Happy Monday, everyone!  We are here to  Bring Back Beautiful (BBB19)  for February!  With Valentine's Day   quickly approaching I am sure there is one last card that needs to be made. Create a project based on Love.  It does not have to be Valentine related. It can be just because you love someone.   This month's challenge is all about the beauty of love!    

For my card I am using Flourishes Hearts & Flowers stamp set.  I  stamped the floral heart with Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock.  I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection.  I cut out and added some touches of clear gems.  I attached to the seam binding bow like a hanging floral heart tag.   I topped the seam binding bow with a matching button and rose colored memory thread curly ques.  I used MME Vanity Fair designer paper for the card background.  The layered with some tonal textures with a folder and die cut.    Finished with a corner sentiment in keeping with the sketch from Card Patterns151. 

Check out what the rest of the team created with the 
Beauty of LOVE theme!


As always thanks so much for stopping by!
