Serenade Moments at Dies to Die for

Morning all! Well that's another week almost done and looking forward to my weekend again. With Valentines seemingly just around the corner I'm sure you're getting a huge chunk of Velentine's cards thrown your way to look at. So my card today which has a definite love theme and would make a perfect card for Valentine's, but also for other occasions because I steered away from the 'traditional' Valentine colours of pink and red (ok there is a little red in there, but really not enough to make a difference).

This super cute stamp is one of the Candibean range, isn't it lovely? I'm still on my Distress Ink colouring kick...well my OH bought me a bunch for Christmas so it would be rude not to.

I've not added the colours used today because to be honest I coloured it a couple of weeks back and I've forgotten doh!

The beautiful papers are from the new Maja collection Nyhavn, aren't they just scrummy, they are limited edition though so they won't be available forever.  Lovely colours and made me feel quite summery in the middle of winter!

As usual I've inked and hand stitched all my layers.

Love that cut out heart die and the edging round the card is made from a large die cut into pieces. I used the border strip from one of the papers to make up a little sentiment banner.

Nyhavn - Old Town Houses (I used the blue side)
Tonic - Love Arch Border Squares Die Set (used the largest cut into pieces behind my card as a border
Musical Note Charm

I hope you like my make for today and I'll see you again on Sunday, until then, happy crafting! :) xx
