Love, Muse & Sketch

Lawn Fawn Peace Joy Love, You've Got Mail, Into the Woods, Winter Gifts, Tag You're It, Heart Dies

This card was inspired by my Lawnscaping muse, Yainea's Thank-you card. I've used lots of glitter, tags, cord, a central die cut shape, white embossing and glimmer mist spray.  I love Yainea's cards and find great inspiration on her blog: My Paper Journey.
My layout is taken from CTS#61 and the Lovey Dovey theme from Sentimental Sundays Challenge #191.

Lawn Fawn Peace Joy Love, You've Got Mail, Into the Woods, Winter Gifts, Tag You're It, Heart Dies

To make the card for the tags, I brushed white card with gesso and allowed it to dry. I then applied and blended Black soot distress ink and Memento London Fog onto the card. Lastly I liberally sprayed with glimmer mist to add lots of shine. For a fabulous example of this technique see Gayatri's gorgeous card on her blog. For the background, I randomly stamped 3 solid hearts from different Lawn Fawn sets in Picked Raspberry, stickle-ing and stella-ing some of them.

My next challenge is to decide if this is a valentine's card or a bride to be on her hen night's card and choose an appropriate sentiment for the inside. What do you think?
