All is fair in love and war!

Sentiment is an American Crafts Rub-On

So your probably wondering about my title today aren't ya? Well, I was on a roll creating cards yesterday and decided to do one more and I wanted to do a "love" card. Needless to say I have never had so many problems with a card before!! It was an all out war between me and this card! LOL! I made SEVERAL mistakes that I had to fix or shall I say "hide"! Overall I think I won the battle!! What do you think? Did I hide the mistakes so good that you can't find them?

Challenges:
Lil Lolita Boutique - Use one of the Lil Lolita images and bling it up (used a viva decor glitter pen to make all the glittery dots in the upper left corner!) Also added some stickles to her flower bouquet.
Tickled Pink Stamps - Sketch and also used one of their images!
Kaboodle Doodle - Add a little metal (metal brad in the center of both flowers)
Paper Sundaes - Metal
Delightful Sketches and Challenges - Distressing
Crafty Creations - Wedding or Anniversary (I think this would make a good anniversary card!)
Stamping Vacation Watch This - Three's Company (I used three different main colors....red, green and black)
Stamping Vacation Name That Card - Used the wording "You Knock My Socks Off" as inspiration.
Stamping Vacation Pick 3 - I chose these 3 (metal embellishment, glitter and an image with a "hand" in it)
Stamping Vacation Clear As Mud - The word is "Candy" but you can't actually have a piece of candy on your card so I am using the image as "eye candy"! Pretty clever huh? HEHE!

No such thing as a mistake, they are just embellishment opportunities. I think you won the war, love all the details!

My theory is that we never make mistakes whilst making a card they are just elements that make a card complete. The card is great love the bling. Thanks for joining us at LLB this week, hugs from Bron
