FCCB Challenge Me Monday #95 - Label It!


Hi everyone and happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend!! The challenge this week at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is "Label It" - create a project using a scalloped shape or other label shape (not a plain circle).
For my project, I created a Valentine card. The base is from Elegant Edges and used my Gypsy to weld it into a card. I ran it through the Polka Dots embossing folder. The paper is from Fancy Pants. I cut two hearts in three different sizes from Gypsy Wanderings and embossed them with Swiss Dots. I attached them together with foam tape for dimension. "Happy Valentine's Day" is from Phrases and I embossed the white shadow with Swiss Dots. I popped the phrase up with foam dots and added Glossy Accents to the red heart. The flower is from Flower Shoppe and I added a handmade stickpin. The scalloped label is from Straight From The Nest. I used Fired Brick Distress Ink to stamp "Be mine" from K Andrew Designs Winged Things stamp set. To purchase your own set of these fabulous stamps, click HERE!

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
I currently have three giveaways going on:
  1. To enter to win a Cricut cart, click HERE!!
  2. To enter to win a K Andrew Designs stamp set, click HERE!!
  3. To enter the Blends Join Hands Blog Hop paper and flower set giveaway, click HERE!!
And be sure to stop back tomorrow for the Cards for Kids Valentine's Day Blog Hop!! There will be lots of fabulous projects and prizes as well!!

Oooh, this is just so pretty! I love the shape! I don't see it often and I've never used that EE cut, but your design with it is gorgeous. I love the soft shades and the beautiful embossing... and did you see your gorgeous flower and stick pin? Great design in that bottom corner! I love how wispy the ribbon is, which coordinates so nicely with the sides of the card base. Wispy, soft, romantic! Exquisite work, my friend! (OH and I love how you embossed the phrase shadow!)

Hugs and blessings!
