how do I love thee?



I'm a sucker for love stories.  Always have. Who remembers Ali McGraw and Ryan O'Neal  in the classic 1970 movie?  Oh, I cried buckets seeing this while I was in high school.  And it still tugs at my heart watching the youTube posting!  There is nothing that will make you feel more alive then deep passionate love.  And I am heralding it today with my card for the 365 Card Blog challenge Day 112 Everlasting Love

 I have used Cosmo Crickets'  lovely paper from the Fleuriste group.  I wish I could have this in a wallpaper, I'd redo my master bedroom!  I stamped the Browning quote (Technique Tuesday) directly to paper.  The peacock mirror stamp is from Tin Can Mail.  It has been embossed in Platinum and I used twinkling H2O's to color the feathers.  The gorgeous lady is a photo art stamp I inked with VersaFine Olympic onto a Brazzill teal cs.  The mirror is cut and popped on foam mounting squares.  I did add a bit of fibers at the handle.  Along the right side I stamped a music score , embossing with clear on the brown base.  To emphasis the sentiment I added a vintage silk green button and a strip of acetate.  Near the top, I stamped the Hero Arts memories script stamp, inking it with VersaMagic Seabreeze.

I carried the Love Story in my heart for 16 years until I met my DH.  Oh, so romantic and loving.  I am blessed indeed.  We have two weddings to attend this summer, I can just see making another card like this with the brides picture in it!

Thanks for your insightful comments, they inspire the muse. Happy Saturday!
