A Spoonful of Sugar gets soppy this week!

(Please scroll down for my Ladybug Crafts Ink post)

Okay, I said the other day that my hubby isn't the romantic type so I'm not really used to making soppy cards, but I did for today's post!  But only because the challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar is "Valentines"!  Talk about DT dedication, huh?!!

 
 


I used another The Greeting Farm Cheeky girl called Glamour - isn't she just gorgeous?  (You can get her from Quixotic Paperie here) I matched her up with lots of sumptuousness (Is that a word?!) - the felt flower (that I made with My Favorite Things rolled rose flower die, you can buy from Dies to Die For here), satin ribbon, lace patterned DPs and lots of glitter!  Actually, I quite like it so I may give this to Steve instead!

Go to the ASOS challenge blog here to see the other DT gorgeous cards!


I am entering this card into the following challenges:



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, October Afternoon The Thrift Shop paper pack
Stamps: The Greeting Farm Cheeky Glamour, Hero Arts antique letter background
Mediums: Copics, Glamour Dust
Accents: ribbon, felt and rub-on sentiments from stash
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch, My Favorite Things rolled rose flower die, Nestabilities label die (inside card)
