Hope you are all okay and had a good weekend. It is quite cold here today even though we have seen some sunshine. I hope you are all managing to stay safe and warm.
An exciting day for me today as my 50th birthday pressie arrived from my hubby. He knew how much I wanted one so he bought me a Brother Scan and Cut machine. It is not my birthday until the end of the month but as he wanted a bit of peace and quiet he has let me have it early lol. So looking forward to having a good play.
My card share for today is a card that I was asked to make for Valentines Day.
I used my Martha Stewart punch for the edges of the card. I do love this hearts around the page punch. The central image is a free stencil that I got in a magazine several months ago. I inked through the stencil with distress ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The image was then mounted onto some cardstock and pearls added. The little hearts on the background were the hearts that came out of the punching. I inked them lightly with distress ink, stuck them to my card randomly and then used stickles to add sparkle. The sentiment was done on my computer and the edges were inked and stickled. The finishing touch was a red organza bow and large pearl heart.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. I do enjoy reading all your comments. I will hopefully be back in a couple of days to let you know how I am getting on with my new machine.
