SEI Mimosa petals Valentine

Happy New Year Everyone!

It's the middle of the afternoon on December 31 and as Rob would say I am "just chillin'". I've done some cleaning, made some valentines, and have been thoroughly enjoying this last day of 2010.

While I was cleaning I came across a package of SEI Mimosa petals paper flowers. I took one of the flowers out of the package. The petals on it looked like hearts to me. I cut off one of the petals so I could play around with it. The remaining flower looked like a butterfly to me...and that lead to this card.

I ran the layering paper through a Marvy Uchida heart crimper. Then I used a Martha Stewart hearts edger paper punch to embellish the bottom edge of the layering paper. I mounted the paper onto a dark peach card that perfectly matched my butterfly and heart and used some pop dots to attach the butterfly and heart to my card.  (My photograph doesn't do the colors of the card, butterfly, and heart justice as they appear to be more orange than peach.)  The butterfly's trail, antennae and body were created with strips of Recollections pearl embellishments. I used SEI chocolate milk alphabet puff stickers for the lettering.

It's a clean and graphic card and it works for me. Hope you like it too.

Enjoy your night!

Your border reminds me how much I love my MS heart border punch ... which I've never used. GOT to get that out and put it to work!

Cute idea using the flower petals.

I've moved everything that has a heart on it or has valentine colors on it front and center. I'm in valentine mode...sadly never sent out most of my Christmas cards...Happy New Year, Cindy!
