Hearts and Flowers

I thought I would try my hand at making a card with the Cricut Lovestruck cartridge.  In my opinion, this cartridge is not just for Valentines day.  The intricate hearts and filigrees are really quite beautiful for other occasions too.  In this instance, I decided to make a feminine thank you card.  I admit that I went a little overboard on the stickles.  I wish I had instead embossed a pearly powder on it, but it will have to do just the way it is.
 I do like the contrast of the sage green and the chocolate brown.  Although, in this photo it appears to be more mint than sage.  Needless to say, my photography skills are not that great.

I believe the paper was from Pebbles in my Pocket.  I purchased a lot of paper from various companies many, many years ago and am just now using it up. I am vague on where I actually purchased most from.  The velvet ribbon was purchased from Joann's.  I used a corner rounder on the edges of the card, the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, and my border punch was made by The Paper Studio and I picked it up at Hobby Lobby.

I hope you enjoy looking.  Please leave me comments if there is anything special you would like to see next time.
