L.O.V.E. Card

The February Challenge is up at Creative Accents Challenge blog!  This is my creation for it :)
I had to take this angle pic otherwise it looked like a circle frame~what's up with that? Anyone know? Maybe I'm taking the photo too close?

It's definitely an oval because.....that's part of the theme....and you can find their blog here
I hope you'll come along and join the challenge.

You can make any paper project using this recipe!  I used stickers for the little girl, flourishes and the small Love oval.  Cardstock is SU and the other paper is stuff from my stash  :)  Lots of little pearls, lace, ribbon and little flowers~all stuff I hoard.   
I think I have it covered! Layers, Ovals, Vintage and Embellishments  :)

I also was working on my Heart Journal this past weekend.  This month, you were to use clay or another medium like it and stamp in it.  I wanted to give the wax a try~another first for me, and I kind of like how it turned out.  The page was painted, sprayed, washed~you name it, I wasn't sure it would stand up to all the moisture, but it came out ok!

I did half a butterfly on the blue side and the other says Believe and Friendship~it's part of a background stamp from Stampin Up.  I may not be finished with this page yet, but had to give it a day or so to dry out  :)

Now, it's back to making some Valentines for my Grandchildren  :)

Thanks for stopping be and please leave a comment so I can visit your blog too  :)
