Purple Valentine


I have a new heart border I have not used yet, so decided to design a purple Valentine with it today.  Yes, Glenda you tempted me. This is another one of the pretty new dies from Memory Box that Joan recently added to her blog.  The name of this is Memory Box "Cherish Border" (98282).  Doesn't it make a pretty Valentine!  If  you didn't want a dimensional card, you could add a sentiment, where I have the purple flowers, and it would be a beautiful "flat" card.  Here are the other items from Joan's Gardens that I used to design this card:  Cheery Lynn "Francesca" (B159) border at the top; Next is the Memory Box "Cherish Border"  The bottom of the card was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Kassies Brocade" embossing folder.  The flowers were created with all the Cheery Lynn Cuties dies " Cuties 1, 2, 3, and 4.  Cuties 4 is the new flower die that was just released.  These flowers are easy to create.  You die cut them, glue two rows together, and roll them up.  For small flowers you only use a third or half of the strip, and for a larger flower you use the whole strip.  Below the flowers I added the Marianne Design "Garden Branch" (LR0 151).  Tucked in between the flowers are a lot of the pretty little leaves that come with the Marianne Design (LR0 117) rectangle doily.  These are very small leaves and fit it perfectly between small flowers.  For some extra color, I cut apart a piece of lavender trim and placed part of it below the pretty heart border and the other half along the top of the card.  A lavender dotted Swiss bow was added to complete the card.

We have been stuck in the house the last few days because of all the snow and ice. I think we had close to a foot of snow then it rained and made all the streets very icy.  I'm looking forward to it warming up next week.

Thanks for stopping by to see what I was up to today.  Hope you enjoy this card.

Selma, this is so pretty. It's nice to see a valentine in something other than pink or red (though I love them both!). You always come up with unique alternatives. Love your work!

Selma, this is stunning! What amazing detail. Gorgeous beyond compare!!!

So far I guess I like the new version of Photoshop. I don't think it all that different, but I switched from an Windows computer to a MacBook Air at the same time, making it seem like a big change. Love the new computer and it gets easier and easier every day. :)

There is nothing more beautiful than the combination of purple and flowers! (at least to me!)
You inspire me to think outside the box and look for other uses for my dies. Thanks!
