Hearts & Flowers at MMM

Make My Monday certainly comes round quickly - can you believe it is Valentine's Day already tomorrow.  Bearing that in mind and keeping in with this month's theme "Romance" the challenge brief at Make My Monday is:-

"Hearts & Flowers"

Check out my fellow design team buddies's work HERE!

I have made two cards again this week as I was enjoying working with the kraft card and shabby sort of look with dulled tones rather than the reds and pinks.

I have used Kaisercraft papers which I have stamped over using the Creative Expressions vintage sewing set, (dressforms and sentiment).  My heart is a very old stamp and I cannot remember the brand.  Lace was ruffled and placed behind.
The  scissors LR0194 and flowers (Craftable CR01202) are both from Marianne Design who just happen to be our wonderful sponsor for the month - there is a wonderful prize!

I am entering this first card into the following challenge:-

My lace is behind my very old heart stamp.

My second card is along the same lines - again using the Kaisercraft paper, my EK Success border punch.

I have used the Marianne Design Hearts Die LR0159 which I cut using kraft card and then layering on top of patterned paper.  The text on the tag is an old stamp again. I have used the binding of a pink pig journal page for edging.
 The rose is an Anitas stamped in Sepia Versafine and then coloured with water colour pencils and then text stamped around the edge.  

Detail photographs.....hope you like my toned down version of Romance cards and can play along with us at Make My Monday.

My second card is being entered into the following challenges:-

I have picked out the roses from the inspirational photo.
This is a new challenge blog!!  Love makes us all happy doesnt it?  Heart punch and border punch used.

Beautiful cards! The color schemes are so lovely. I always adore the 'kraft' brown with that shade of blue. I love what you have done with the first card, which any sewing enthusiast would be thrilled to receive. The flowers on the second card are darling! Thank you for joining us at Just Inspirational Challenges!
