I Do Love You Flowery Easel Card...

Good morning, Crafty people!  I know that many of you are busy making "Love" themed card these days and I must say I did not make any until last night.  The truth is I don't make card for a specific occasion but something that can be used for any occasion so, here's my take on a romantic card...LOL  First, I colored a cute boy with a rose image from Whipper Snapper Designs with my Promarkers.  I got an A2 Kraft CS and fold it into an Easel Card.  I embossed the background frame image (both in the card and envelope) as well as the inside of the card with my Cuttlebug.  I used 3 Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Fired Brick, Broken China and Walnut Stain) to age the background.  I printed the wonderful message into two parts, die-cut and emboss  with my Nesties and inked all over them.  I pieced together several Prima flowers, attached multicolor Imaginisce gems in the center of each and all over the card.  I punched 2 colors of leaves (dark brown and green) using an MS Punch and attached them to the card.  I also created an envelope-box to coordinate with this card.  I am so happy with the result.  It's my first time to blend distress inks in a card and it went well.  Thank God for the idea.  Anyway, hope you enjoy browsing and please leave me a comment on what you think about this card.  This card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.  Fairy Fun Fridays featuring "Let me call you, Sweetheart"

Hmm, what will I do next?  So many projects but not much time to do them.  Oh well, weekend is pretty busy but hoping to have a few hours later to start another project.  Creating these cards are like therapy for me, they give a smile to my face.  I can't help but thank my Father in Heaven for giving me such wonderful inspiration day after day.  I can't imagine not having Jesus in my life...what a sad creation and projects it will be.  God bless ya'll!
