Love You Girl!

Happy Sunday everyone!  I hope you are having a great weekend!  I was fortunate to have Friday off and was hoping to accomplish so much more than I have thus far.  I think I hit a wall earlier in the week when I  caught  another cold and  now trying to rid my body of the aches, pains, sore throat, and running nose with various reliefs.  Hopefully it will pass soon. :-)
Today's card uses lots of techniques and a sweet image from Heather Ellis.  Our challenge at Sentimental Sunday's this week is dry embossing.  I have to admit I don't do this very often.  I have Big Red (old Sizzix) machine that I have to pull out for die cuts and I just don't like it.  Hubby bought me a Cricut a few years back but I told him I didn't need it and he returned it.  I know, what was I thinking?  I was thinking I wanted to wait till the market had developed and then I would invest in one.  Still waiting I guess.  Actually, I don't know where in the world I would store it.  I have limited space in my studio area.  Moving on...
I kept the colors really soft for this card by using My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Madison papers.  I dry embossed a piece of Coredinations whitewash card stock with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and then sanded it to allow the gorgeous pink to show through.  I punched several hearts and stitched them together with my machine at the bottom.  I die cut a Spellbinder's label to adhere the image on and then stamped a sentiment on a tiny strip of pattern paper and cut to make a pennant.  It is embellished with two pearls (love the softness) from Queen and Co. I thought it needed a little something for the top of the card so I added two photo corners from
my stash.

I did paper piece her dress with a subtle print also from My Mind's Eye. The image is Pure Innocence 16 and can be found here. Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a blessed Sunday!
