Throwing my Hat in

This is my second post for today please scroll down for my Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Card 102

I was looking at the MFT guest designer challenge for February and didn't think I was going to play along - then I remembered I had received as a birthday present MFT's  Clearly Sentimental stamps About Love so I thought I might make a card.

Yes this is so not a card!  I remembered I had some frames so I decided to alter one of them.  The contest requires a Valentines theme (love sentiment); 2 card stocks not including the base; I have groovy guava, riding hood red, and sage shadow (a colour I never use!!); 1 design paper - I used  2 from My Minds Eye be loved from last year.  The final requirement was 3 embellishments.  I did a pool with some friends on whether sewing was an embellishment; some said yes some no so I have the flowers made with MFT's rolled flower die-namic; a ghost heart, ghost leaves, and on the sentiment (cut with die-namics framed greetings die) I have two tiny heart rhinestones.

When I finished the project I added one of my favourite pictures of my parents (this is suppose to be a gift for them HOWEVER it looks fabulous on a table in my stamp room!!)  The picture was taken when they were dating over 53 years ago!!  This picture of them makes me smile; how lucky am I that they are still together; they are quite the example to us kids!!

Thanks for stopping by - have a fantastic day!!

Beautiful - I LOVE it!! The ghost heart and leaves behind the rolled flowers is perfect and I love the sentiment you put on the framed greeting die. You need to make another one for your parents seeing as it sounds like this one is not leaving your stamping table!!
