"Red Letter Day, St. Valentine's"
I just love this rich colour combination of deep pink & gold, so romantic and feminine and just perfect for a Valentine's or Anniversary card.
The main panel has the script stamp from Tim Holtz' "Papillon" stamp set with plenty of gold Perfect Pearls and other stamps from the set are added in black archival ink.
"Butterflies Flutter By"
This huge Spellbinders butterfly makes a great centrepiece to echo all the lovely Tim Holtz stamped butterflies.
Parts of diecuts from the Spellbinders Elegant Posts set are cut & coloured to look like metallic corners.
Smaller butterflies are made using Marianne Creatables diecuts.
Some pink gems are added for a little sparkle.
More of that scrumptious lace from Kathy is added for texture (thanks again Kathy).
"Tags and charms"
One of Lee's bird cage diecuts make a fabulous foil to hang interesting extras from (thanks again Lee). Here, three diecuts from Tim's "Tiny Tabs & Tags" set have been stamped with parts of the Papillon set and inked to match the background, then attached with jump rings along with a couple of charms. The bird cage itself was attached via a chain of jump rings to a small eyelet set into the top of the card.
