Unleash your Joy.....

Hello everyone and a very Happy Valentine's Day!!!!! to all of you, on this day of Love and Friendship I'm just thrilled by the amazing friends I've met through this wonderful craft and my blog, on my Journey as a card maker and, I thank all of you, from the bottom of my grateful heart and I send warm hugs and my love, across the miles, to each and everyone of you.
I have a card to share with you today that I finished yesterday but I'm posting it right now, while hubby is fixing our Valentine's Day breakfast. Here it is.


No coloring this time, just some die cutting the little butterflies with a retired SU Embosslits called "Beautiful Wings" and gold heat embossing the sentiment from a retired Flourishes set called "Country Charm Labels".  I scored my Lilac card stock on the diagonal and glued the butterflies on each corner. Here is a close up of the gold embossed sentiment.


And a picture of the finished inside.


The sentiment is from another retired Flourishes set called "Beauty Within" and it's stamped with SU Wild Wasabi ink. The butterfly in the corner is from a SU Hostess set I got on Ebay called "Best Thoughts" and it's stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink.
I die cut the sentiment with the smallest die on the Spellbinders set called Decorative Labels 8 .
I'm linking this card to the following challenges.



Just Add Ink Just Add "V" challenge #298, I chose to add the color Violet.

And here are some pictures of the retired products I used, I figured that, if I include this images maybe you guys can look for them knowing what they look like.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Thank you my friend, this die is old and a bit warped but still cuts perfectly, it didn't take me all that much time to cut all of those little butterflies. I haven't used it in a while so I thought this combination of challenges was perfect for it.
