A little love goes a long way

A quick post from me with my Elizabeth Mae card.  I am excited to share this one because I pulled some ancient papers out to use on it.  I have four sheets of this crossword puzzle paper eagerly awaiting to be used and it finally happened after 6 years!  Wow!  That's a long time.  It's by DMD.  Do they still exist?  Not even sure.  When I bought this paper I was sure I would use multiple sheets hence the quantity I bought.  There it sat, lonely in my paper bins.  It was buried under newer styles but I saved it to create this whimsical card.  I picked the  Angel Girl for the heart challenge because I originally intended to place a heart in her hand but that didn't work out so... I went with the next idea which was to add the heart to the sentiment sticker from SRM on the velvet pink ribbon.  That's tiny Maya Road heart in purple.  I punched a pink print with my Martha Stewart doily punch and then layered with some eyelet trim and then a layer of the velvet ribbon.  Love my layers!  :-) 
I hope you will come join us!  Check out what the rest of the designers did here
