Romance and Diamonds

Today, I've finished the card I started at Jacqueline's on Tuesday, that I was making for the Make My Monday challenge where the theme is still Romance, and this week they are looking for Flourishes and Diamonds.

Here is my card

The heart flourishes were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in gold and the hearts cut out by hand ( I must get a set of heart dies) with the one in the front raised on 3D pads. The rose buds are a spiral circle rolled up with a pink diamond bead in the centres, and the leaves were made with the SU Bird punch in white card and coloured with the green SU Write Marker. The sentiment "always" was  part of a stamp from Whimsical words, and the "love" was written by hand, with a diamond in place of the O.

Recipe :
Card = Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, and cream card from stash
Stamps = Always Elegant, Baroque Motifs, and Whimsical Words
Inks = Versamark, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler
Tools = SU Bird Punch, and heat gun
Extras = 3D pads, pink diamond beads, diamante gems

Thanks for looking today.
