Edward & Bella

Hi!  Made a card for Club Anya and Friends Saturday Sketch.

I flipped the sketch upside down because I wanted to use my heart doily die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  It looked so good on Cheryl's card HERE.  I bought these dies from Cute Stuff.  They are so pretty.  Anyway, I thought the scalloped bottom could be the top half of the large heart doily.  The little rolled rose is from MFT.  Cut from PTI felt with a tiny cutout heart in the center.

Then I made it into an easel card so the bottom half of the card could go on the inside of the card.  The heart was cut from a shiny grey cardstock.  It was leftover from the time I made my Beatles page.  See HERE if interested.  It's taken me this long to finally use the scraps.

Oh yeah, I forgot to talk about the stamps!  I used TGF's Edward and Camille (Bella for all the Twilight fans).  Edward was probably one of my first TGF's stamps.  I didn't get Camille til much later and took me even longer to finally put them together.  I even had them wear matching colored clothes.  Edward's face has a bit of sparkle shimmer spritz  sprayed on him.  Tied on some ribbon and a bow and added a love charm I got from Stamp and Create when I ordered from them.  That was a nice surprise.

I left this card sort of sentiment-less.  If I had a nice crafting room I'd display it to remind me of the Twilight series. 

Well, thanks for reading!
