Here's my card using Lots of Love:


Lots of Love

The new Lots of Love set is perfect for Valentine's Day and any love card. I love the beautiful script--Kim's lettering is gorgeous! 


I die-cut the heart on my Cameo, watercolored the panel with spray mists, and then stamped over it using the Lots of Love sentiment. I went a little crazy with the watercoloring, but decided to go with the artsy look. ;) The flowers are from the new Lovely Thoughts set. I embossed the flowers on vellum and then watercolored over them.

Here's a close-up:


Lots of Love

I finished the card by die-cutting a scalloped base out of the Notes and Things paper. 

Thanks for stopping by! Next up is my sweet and very talented friend Kalyn!
