Sweet Maiden Valentine

Here is my 3rd of  four Valentines made using an image from Nicecrane Designs.  Sometimes it is fun to use non-traditional colors for holidays as I did on this card.

I used decorative layers cut with the Spellbinders die Resplendent Rectangles and then "popped" the layers using fun foam. I find that using fun foam instead of little squares or circles keeps your layers more uniform and keeps the sags away.

The pale green paper has a slight sheen and pattern to it. I embellished with tulle, paper flowers, and oval shaped pearls.  A Valentine greeting is on the inside of the card.

If you missed my other cards for Nicecrane Designs, you can find them here (#1) and here (#2).

Thank you for visiting.
