Love & Hearts: Valentine Journal: Flip through and Giveaway.

A labor of love and heart.   

A flip through:

A few of my favorite pages:
 I added a heart which opens to reveal silver embossing and a butterfly.  I wanted the butterflies from the card to look as though they were flying off the page.

Here I wanted to incorporate elements from the card by adding a yellow ribbon and silk lily-of-the-valley. Notice the quote references the bow.

 I was gifted this metallic gold hearts tissue paper. I knew it had to be a part of this journal.

 Gold crochet thread with tiny sequins wrapped around a heart. Wedding veil material allows the gold hearts of the tissue paper to peak through.

Embellishing one of my photos with cheesecloth, ribbon, crocheting thread and Stampendous Color Fragments.

Adding layers to this beautiful card.
