The Creative Crafters Challenge #61

 Hi there

It's time again for a new challenge over at The Creative Crafters blog. Our challenge runs from 15th Feb till the 8th March and as always the theme is 'Anything Goes'. We would love you to stop by and join in. With it being February, my project is themed for Valentine's Day. I created this CAS card for my Husband, but can be tailored to suit anyone...

For this I used A4 patterned card to create an A5 card. I added raffia bow with die cut hearts attached, finishing off with die cut sentiments and adhesive gems.

Materials Used 
Moonstone - 'Love Always Sentiments' and 'Straight Edge Heart' Dies
A4 Matt-tastic Patterned Card - 'Paper & Wood' 
Diamond Sparkles Card - 'Ruby Red'
First Edition
Male Sentiment Die - 'Husband'
My Stash 
Red satin mirri card and Brown Raffia

Please do stop by and join us for this months challenge, we'd love to see all your gorgeous creations. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and hope that you enjoyed your visit. Your feedback is always very much appreciated and would also love you to follow my blog, if you aren't already.

Loads of crafty hugs till next time
