Die Love!

Hello Friends!

At last I am on my last two challenge cards from the Love Fest over on SCS, but they were both fun ones and I used lots of my new dies!

I created this first card for the Love Fest challenge hosted by The Greeting Farm.  We were to create a card with a "love" theme using dies.  So, I used many dies!!  I used a "Framelits" die by SU!, the "Fancy Lattice" die by Spellbinders, a Vintage Noir #6002 flourish die from Joy Craft, a SU! "Embosslits Beautiful Wings" butterfly die and all three sizes of rose dies from the Spellbinders "Bitty Blossoms" die set. Now that's love!! 

After assembling all my die cuts, I glued them to my card base and I added some tear-drop pearls and a vintage button heart. I started to add a little banner with a verse about love, but decided to leave it off since the design was already so busy. Hoping my heart button alone qualifies as a "love theme" for the challenge!

My next card was super quick and simple.  This one goes in the mail tomorrow to my Aunt Dolores who has been battling cancer for almost a year now.

I made this card for the challenge hosted by Verve: "In Love with Color".  I used TH Large Rosette die, a Quickcuts Pinking Circle die and a new Sizzix "Decorative Border and Heart" die.  The sentiment in the center is from Verve "Hope Blooms" set.  This card was as quick and easy to make as it was to blog about! 

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Both are gorgeous, but you outdid yourself with the first one! Love the vintage feel and colors of it. And the second one is so bright and cheerful. I'm sure your aunt will love it too.
