Viva la Verve! March Week 2--Love's Flower

Hello there! I had some time to get crafty today while my honey was taking care of some training he has to do. My first thought was to jump on this week's Viva la Verve sketch! Charmaine is the hostess this week and she came up with a really fun sketch! Check this out:

I love how everything is sort of bunched in the lower half, it leaves a lot of room for "white space" which I really love! I don't usually leave a lot of white space, but I do love the look:)
Here's my card using an old favorite stamp set, Love's Flower--

I really really REALLY love this color combination! I pulled it from the patterned paper which is Hattie from the Stella & Rose collection by MME! You know what I love about the MME 6x6 paper pads? The papers are STILL double sided! The papers I used on this card come from the same sheet, front and back! Sweet, right? Love that! I slapped on some green pearls (Recollections by Michaels) and some sweet vellum butterflies and tied some ribbon on the card front! The card base is Enchanted Evening (PTI).

Want to play along? If you play along ALL month you could win the next month's stamp release! That's like Christmas!!
