Happy Valentine's Day

Last minute once again for the Impression Obsession challenge. With pink being my favorite color I just had to enter!  
I began by white embossing an assortment of the little flowers from IO Petite Flowers 1.  Then I sponged with worn lipstick Distress Ink getting slightly darker down the center.  Had to add a bit of Stickles to each flower--so pretty in real life.  A strip of silver glitter paper was attached to the card front & I stamped IO Simple Pleasures in Brilliance Graphite Black, using my mini MISTI.  The panel was mounted with fun foam & PPP Sparkling Clear sequins finish it off.  I'm also entering CropStop & SSS Monday (tool is mini MISTI).

Had a nice quiet birthday on Sunday & it was a lovely sunshiny day.  I really appreciate the cards, gifts & well-wishes.  Have to share the card from hubby--couldn't stop laughing!  The inside is 3D & hard to photograph, but hopefully you can read most of it.  Today hubby came home with a balloon & beautiful bouquet of pink tulips--pretty nice week for this old gal! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  3. This is such a pretty card Greta. It's CAS, but not TOO CAS!! Love the bit of glittery paper you added! I'm so sorry I didn't remember it was your birthday. Wishing you the happiest of belated birthday wishes. Your card from hubby is too darn cute! Wouldn't all of those things come in handy. The secret chocolate stash is my fave!!

  10. I love the sponging darker down the center. That is such a pretty card. Your hubby nailed this card! I think that's what the inside of a car should look like. I would like to have a hook to hang my purse on too. I love the nail polish dryers on both sides. What a hoot!
