BasicGrey Challenge #22

Happy Valentine's Day to all my lovely blogging friends - I hope you all get spoiled rotten today 'cause you well and truly deserve it. To celebrate this special day, today on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog.......

"As today is a very special day, we would like you to get all loved up in your creations and show us some hearts, it can be any size and any quantity of hearts you wish, and also not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation"

I used some dark brown Bazzill as my base card.

The patterned paper is BasicGrey "Bittersweet" and I distressed the edges using distress ink.

All the stamps used (swirls around the outside edge, music and rose) are from Penny Black's "Clearly in Love" set which is absolutely gorgeous.

The swirls have been stamped in gold ink.

I cut a heart with my heart nesties and stamped the music score with distress ink.

The rose has been stamped with black versafine and coloured with distress inks.

The lace is from my stash and I made the pin from various beads in my stash. The pearls are also from my stash.

The sentiment is by October Afternoon.

You must go and see the other DT's creations. Wow, they are truly amazing this week !

I hope you all have a great day !
