Anna's "Flowered with Love"

I made this for Beate's weekend sketch challenge that she posts on her blog (WSC29). If you have never made it to Beate's blog, you don't know what you're missing!

Let me start off by saying that this card is so much prettier in real life (I always seem to be saying that). We have snow today in CO and I'm having a real hard time finding good light to photograph with. Just imagine all the shimmer and sparkle for me OK?

The focal point is a Whipper Snapper stamp that was designed by Anna Wight (aka Sweet Miss Daisy). This stamp is actually signed by Anna as I won it on her blog last year. I stamped the focal image in black Staz-On on Shimmery White and then colored in with my Copic Spica glitter pens. I outlined with a very light grey Copic marker to give the image a little depth and then added a few Diamond Stickles details. The piece was cut out and embossed with my rectangle Nestabilities and then mounted on a Shimmery Ruby piece of cardstock (that was also cut out with Nestabilities).

The card base is 5 1/4 " square. I stamped the retired SU Soft Swirls background in Craft Black on a Shimmery White square. I then embossed this with Iridescent Ice ep and then colored in the hearts with my Red Spica pen. I then adhered a black strip that was embossed with my Divine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder. Some Primas and a crystal brad finish off the card.
