Sweet Valentine

I made this card for the CR84FN Challenge and for my card club card swap.  I loved working with these colors, it really inspired me to make this card.  I used a lot of Stampin Up products here.  The bird punch, The embossing folder and the butterflies are all Stampin Up.  The border and heart are Bird's blog SVG  free cut files I cut on my SCAL .  This is a 4.25 x 5.50 card not my usual 5 x 7 card.  I also used Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick and beautiful clear rhinestones.  I used a tip from my friend Enfys was to color my clear rhinestones with my alcohol ink marker.  
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
I'm entering this into the following challenges:

  18. OMG Diane! I LOVE this card! The color scheme is really cool but the embossing just stands out so! It is beautiful! I'm so glad you used this bird because I have the same punch and thought the little piece was a leaf - duh! It's the wing! LOL! I love how you ink distressed it so it stands out. The border punch is elegant - your swap club will love their card when they get it!
