Your Love Shines Through

Well, talk about the 11th hour! I almost didn't have a card ready for today's Frosted Designs challenge. Honestly, I've been hunting high and low for my mojo all week, but the little devil has been playing hide and seek! I could hear it giggling away like a naughty little kiddie, but I just couldn't find it. Mind you, I think that choccie biccie I put on my craft desk did the trick and coaxed it out just long enough to make this card. :D

Today's Frosted Designs challenge is to incorporate your own handwriting into your project. I had high hopes of creating a written background or a fantastic tag, but in the end a couple of small hearts won out.

Of course, I'm going to enter this into a few challenges too.

Cute Card Thursday - Ribbon-tastic (threaded through the lace)
C.R.A.F.T - Ribbons and Sparkle (ribbon in the lace, glamour dust on the hearts and image, and sparkly tiny beading trim)
Crafty Creations - Cut it out and pop it up (the flower)

Items Used:
Papers - DCWV, Basic Grey and Now That's Funky CD
White and Grey card stock
Image - Penny Black
Hearts - X Cut die
Distress Inks: Frayed Burlap, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Weathered Wood
Glamour Dust, Lace, Beading trim, Pink beads, Ribbon, and flowers from my stash

Hop on over to the Frosted Designs challenge blog for more inspiration from the talented DT on creative ways to incorporate your own handwriting into your projects.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
