Heaven Sent

Update Feb. 06th, 2010: WooHoo! Made top 5 at Sweet Stampin Challenge with this card. You can fine it here. Thanks to the La-La DT girls :)

Thanks for stopping by and reading my post today. I know we all treasures our time, I sincerely want to thank those that leave me comments, send me emails and also to those just passing by. I hope you will find something in my post today that will inspire you to make a card or project of your own.

"Heaven Sent" is the title of my card today. I wanted to make a Love/Valentine card for the one that you love the most...your Baby...what do you think? I thought it wasn't going to work, but after everything came together, I like it :) With soft baby colors and a Valentine Love stamp...I think it works. I've used tulle, scallop lace, pearls, doily, ribbon and charms for this baby love theme card. I love water coloring with Distress Ink and Pearl Ex for the added shimmer and shine on my images. I especially love the softness and the blending ability of water coloring plus, it's so much fun. Every time I sit down to color, I feel like a kid again. It's so relaxing and calming, this might sounds funny and weird, but I highly encourage coloring an image to relax your mind before heading to bed. :) lol

The card was made following my CLP-19 sketch and a few other listed with links below.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
