TODAY'S PRIZE:
Love Deepens, Proverbs 31:28 Plain Jane

and Elegant Leaves Die



I'm so excited for you to see Love Deepens! It's filled with wonderful sentiments to celebrate all the women in your life -- moms, grandmas, aunts, sisters, cousins, nieces, and friends. The sentiment that jumped out at me most is the one I used for today's card because it's exactly how I feel about my dear mom and her relationship with my children! I used papers from Prima's Reflections collection, some Spellbinders die-cuts (Fancy Tags Two and Labels Eighteen), and a Verve Classy Label die-cut for the sentiment. Embellishments include pearls, scrunched seam binding and a sprig of Prima's Melon Candy Gems. The angled panel and trim are inspired by Julee and Laurie -- I tilt the panels a lot, but not ribbon or trim. I'm liking it - thanks, girls!



Thanks so much for visiting! I'm the end of the line for today's hop. Hope you've enjoyed the Divas' peeks today!!
