 I love the Savvy Dies "Cupid" and the Memory Box "Precious Hearts" dies to create a very romantic type card.   I started by embossing the background with the eBosser "Delicate Dots" embossing folder.  I used two frames behind the little "Precious Hearts"; the one in the back is the Memory Box "Twirling Vine" and layered on top is one of the dies from the Marianne Design (LR0235) doily set.  I used Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Multi-medium Matte adhesive to glue these pieces down.  This is a wide mouth jar and you can either dip portions of the die cut into the adhesive or use a brush to pick up glue and spread on your die cut.  

The roses were created using the Spellbinders "Spiral Blossom Four" and the MFT "Royal Rolled Rose" dies.  They were die cut using white card stock and sponged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink before rolling them.  I used a variety of leaves to tuck around the flowers:  Marianne Design (LR0117), Marianne Design (LR0226) and Memory Box "Tender Leaves" (98313) to give the background fullness.   I had a pretty fluffy white feather in my stash and tucked that down in between the flowers. The "Cupid" was attached using a dimensional glue dot.  To add a little more "elegance" to this card, I added a lot of Kaiser Craft "Blush" pearls. A bow was made with the "Bow Easy" and placed down in the corner.  For the sentiment,  I used a very small stamp, from my stash, that says "Hugs" on the largest of the "Precious Hearts".

Selma your cards are always over the top gorgeous. I also noticed Joan did not mention you in her celebration but I am sure a lot of her success is because of all your beautiful work you do for her. I always look forward to your cards every morning. Thanks gal for being so generous with your creativity. God has blessed you.
