Inspired by all the little things 42

Hi Friends, are you in Valentine mode? We are at Inspired by all the little things 42, although you can be inspired by our photo to make any kind of card! 

OK, I was a little stumped with the inspiration but worked it out. I'm not sure if my card style is sorta mixed media or HOT MESS? LOL! 

The Frantage embossing powder was fun to use! You can't tell but it's white with gold glitter mixed in. I had fun applying it to the Cartabella wood grain paper with Versamark and on the wood veneer hearts. I was trying to have a vertical element like the inspiration photo so I added Crate Paper letter stickers for the LOVE word. (They came in last years SSS February card kit.) 

The focal sentiment was stamped with SSS Hello Beautiful stamp set. A nest of gold thread sits under my MFT stitched circle diecut. 

I hope you will join us this week. Please click the link above and check out the design team's cards!
