Inspired By All The LIttle Things

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a super Saturday! We've got the second Inspired By All The Little Things challenge for January happening today (remember the change in 2018 is to only have two challenges per month instead of weekly).  This sweet inspiration photo had two little details that inspired my card - the textured background on the white cookies and the heart shaped cookies!

I kept it clean and simple and started by dry embossing the background using a Sizzix embossing folder.  The layered Floral Fantasy die set by Altenew was on my desk from a previous project, so I opted to use it again and cut from some dark burgundy, medium pink and watercolored red scrap pieces of cardstock.  The watercolored leaves were also from my leftover pile as was the silver glitter Sketch Heart by Simon Says Stamp.  The sentiment is from SSS Brush Stroke Messages stamp set.  

Would love to have you play along with us!

Very pretty! I sure do like when you have leftover pieces and they can be used. I need to remember to get out my embossing folders!

The wonderfully watercolored floral fantasy, sentiment, and heart make this a great Valentine, Wanda! I love the dimension of the e/f, too!! Hugs, Darnell
