Love Grows - USCSC14

Being home with two sick little boys is, oddly, allowing me to get a lot of cards done. My 4-year-old wants me to 'craft with him' (which entails handing him crafting items such as tape, glue dots, my 'crocodile' aka Crop-a-dile, and scraps of goodies off my desk), and my 2-year-old wants to alternately crash in front of 'a show' and cuddle with Mommy. So, while crafting with Big D I do a bit of crafting of my own, and while cuddling Little J, I upload and blog! *wink*

So, here's the latest, based on Amber's fabulous Unity Sketch Challenge #14:

I stamped the heart tree from 'Love Grows' using various ZIG Writers to color the image for stamping onto Whisper White, then trimmed the image and stamped 'love grows' next to the trunk. I matted the image on Wild Wasabi textured CS, then found scraps in coordinating colors for the other two panels (Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red). I stamped 'love grows' repeatedly on the Rose Red scrap, and tied a ribbon and taped it around the Pumpkin Pie scrap. For the background panel, I cut a 4" x 5" piece of Jersey Shore DP (now retired), and punched a strip of Wild Wasabi CS, which I taped to the back of the DP panel. I adhered everything down onto a standard A2 Rose Red card base, and added some felt Flower Fusion flowers to the corner of the image panel. So glad I finally broke out those felt flowers!!

Thanks for stopping by!
