A Continual Work In Progress

I find when I make a card although I may like it I think after "Oh I shoulda done this...or that". Usually I just put it in a drawer & forget I made it. I felt tonite I just could not get it right but wanted to keep trying.

so Example number 1 seemed too plain to me, the L, V & E stamped in Stampin Up Purely Pomigranate, the O stamped in
white, then on white & pink cardstock I stamped in pomigranate punched them out and popped dotted them up. When I look at the card although it looks ok I didn't love it :)

Example number 2 I rolled the background with white hearts on the pink & loved it. Then I used a pink stamp pad and embossed the L,V & E with Star Dust, then mounted that on patterned paper & didn't like it

Then my final example...I think it is the one I will make as a group project for card nite. Let me know what you think!

I rolled the background with white hearts, then on red cardstock I embossed the L,V & E in white embossing powder & cut them out. The center of the flower is the O embossed on pink and the ricrac finishes it off. I LOVE this one :) hope the girls do!

thanks for droppin by
