Valentine's with Baked Texture ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I have another card to share with you that has the rest of the background I created using the Fractured Ice Baked Texture embossing enamel and here it is …

A 148mm square card
It has lots of lovely yummy texture!
The pretty flower and leaf stamps
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #454 Love is in the Air
Creatalicious Challenge #131 Anything Goes
Emerald Creek Dares Lucky or In Love I’m in a lovey dovey mood

I used my Simon Says Stamp More Spring Flowers stamp set again but I mixed up the dies I used so that I would get a different look. Luckily for me all of the die cuts were created from little itty bitty snippets or freebies or leftovers what ever you want to call them lol!

I’m off to play with the Fractured Ice again, I think I’m going to need many more tubs of it lol!  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
