Simon Says It Must Be Love

I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to be a guest designer over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge for the month of February!!  
For the next four Wednesdays, I will be having fun making cards for each week's challenge!!
This weeks challenge is: It Must Be Love
The challenge is showcasing Simon Says Stamp products, and although not necessary to enter the challenge, if you have Simon products to use on your cards, that would be wonderful!!
The winner of the challenge will be given a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp...sweet!!!

My card is full of some sweet and "love"ly Simon Says Stamp dies and a stencil...
I used translucent embossing paste on a piece of cream cardstock, and after allowing it to dry, die cut the heart die and then layered it.  I used the flowers from the Simon Floral Burst Collage die for the flowers, and the leaves are from the Simon Forget Me Not flower die set (these leaves have become some of my favorite!).  I used the Simon I Love You die for the sentiment, minus the "I", die cut from the same textured cardstock as the card, and layered a couple times.  The flowers are dotted with enamel dots made from Tonic Studios Crystal Drops(I squirted the dots onto some acetate, allowed them to dry, removed them from the acetate and adhered to flowers).  Here's a close up...
Such have until next Wednesday at 8am (EST) to join the fun and create something amazing for this week's challenge!  
Hope, too, you will get connected to Simon's Wednesday Challenge if you're not already...a great way to stay inspired!! You can see what the amazing design team has created for this challenge by clicking the link above.
