Be Mine

Here's another fun valentine card that I made using a wonderful stamp from Simply Betty Stamps. I just love her images.  I have made some fun valentines this year, I didn't want to show this one before Valentine's Day though as sometimes my hubby does see the blog :)
Here I am using a couple die cuts, some Jolees stickers, some cardstock stickers....so tell me today, what type of embellishments are your favorites on cards?

As I am sure you have started to notice, I do love die cuts, I also love buttons, cardstock stickers, and flowers with those glazed style brads as well as bling.  Which type of embellishments are your favorites?

Be sure to keep your eye on the winner list, it gets updated regularly now, you can get to it by clicking on the image in the upper right hand column.  ALSO, if you are new visiting, be sure and leave a comment on Feb 1st!  that's the main prize location for the month of which the grand prizes will be drawn.  You are also welcome to go back through the last week and leave comments during each posting as winners for those days have not yet been chosen! click the Home link to go to the main blog.

Loved your card today and the arrangewments of all the embellishments you used. I love to use die cuts the most. I also like to make cards out of all the leftover embellishments and "bits & pieces" of pattern papers and cardstock.

Love the girl on the trapeze-hope she doesn't lose her heart! LOL I think one of my fave embellishments (besides ink) is lace. Always on the lookout for lace at the thrift stores and rummage sales.

rovianne said...

Oh lovely card, your husband must be very pleased.
I love flowers on my cards. I have to admit that I have a lot of ribbons and die cuts but usually forget them....

Such a lovely card! I also am a fan of die cuts. I really like the die cut at the bottom of the card.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

I love these die cuts.

Cindy said...

My favorite embellishments are buttons and flowers!! I had to chuckle when I saw this card cute!

cebelica said...

Sexy!!! :D
I love the border die cuts you used. They are very pretty. Gotta get this die! I love using die cuts and punches on my cards. And pearls and gems. And flowers and butterflies. And ribbon and lace. I have to admit that sometimes I go a bit crazy with embellishments on my cards. *blush* But if I REALLY had to chose my favourite emebellishments, I would have to say ribbons, flowers and pearls. Hugs! xx

Phi said...

Cute card Holley. I love flowers on cards but the really nice ones are not cheap so I use them sparingly.

thinkscrap said...

My go-to embellishment is always something that will add texture. So anything from a punched border, buttons, twine, string, brads, flower or bling.

Lucie H said...

What a tease! Great card!

Linda Simpson said...

This is fabulous Holley! Love the image.
