Love/Valentine Card ~ Bursting with Love

WOW where oh where has January gone?
When I was a young girl my Mom used to say
time goes faster the older you get
and I have to admit I rolled my eyes at that.
Well Mom you were right.....

I wanted my card to have a CAS feel.
First I cut the large heart from the card front.
After sponging up the edges I attached it to the card base.
Next I stamped the hearts in the middle of the cut out.
I just love this sweet sentiment.
{no matter what}
It kind of says it all for me.
To finish off my card
I added the little hearts and rhinestones
bursting from the heart.



*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Sentiment and hearts from the No Matter What stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Large heart cut using the Wavy Hearts Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Small hearts cut using a punch from EK success.
*Rhinestones from Darice.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
