Fountain of Love

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a blessed week. Thank you for your continued emails/comments of love and support. I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a sweet Valentine using Pion Design's To my Valentine. I'm still wrapped up in all things lovey-dovey, so I made a card for someone in need of extra love. ♥︎
My fountain of love is a beautiful resin Prima Garden Fountain, which is embossed with Shabby White Frantage and bubbles up with pearly love. Wild Orchid Crafts flowers bloom across it, accented with a sweet sentiment and butterflies from the coordinating Borders sheet.
Marguerite lace, topped with Sunflower Pearl Trim, rest atop the darling miniature heart paper. My Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles card base is made with the new Red II from Pion's heavyweight Palette collection.
Atop a gorgeous Lace Heart Appliqué I have layered a double-bow of seam binding, a sparkly heart key charm, and another sweet Pion butterfly. Mini Heart Crochet Trim lines the top, which is a recent purchase of which I am completely in love. ♥︎ I topped it with pearls because I cannot stop my pearly self.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful weekend. :o)
