Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 227

Hello craft lovers and welcome to my blog.  Always so nice to have you here for a visit. 
 A very special welcome to my new followers.  Thank you so much for joining me on my creative journey.

It is time for a new Challenge at Crafty CardmakersMaike is our lovely host and, because it's that time of the year, the Theme is Love, Love, Love!
As always, anything you create is fine as long as it follows the Theme.

I didn't need to make a card for my Hubby as we don't celebrate Valentine's day so, for this Challenge, I have created a feminine card. 
The papers used are from Kaisercraft's Floral Romance Collection.

This is another fairly simple card.
I cut my papers to size and then distressed and tore some of the edges.
Cut two small tags and distressed those edges as well and then added the faux stitching with a white gel pen.
Cut some lace to fit in with the design, found a pretty flower from my stash and put it all together.  The sweet little heart is a wooden embellie also by Kaisercraft.
Once it was done I added a little bling with a few small gems.

I hope I have given you some inspiration to join in with the Challenge.  For lots more inspo,  pop  over to the Crafty Cardmakers blog and take a peek at the awesome creations by my Teamies.  While you're there, why not link up your entry!!
