It must be love!

Beckie dared us this week @ Daring Cardmakers' with this fantastic dare;

You may have noticed that tomorrow is St Valentines day!!!  The web has been filled with all things LOVE and it got me thinking 
about this weeks dare .....

So you are probably not surprised that it's going to be a LOVE card but here is the twist ... it doesn't have to be if you don't want it to be, it could even be a birthday card of a thank you note ......

The dare this week is to use at least one item/product
 on your card beginning with each of the
 letters L.O.V and E.

My initial(!) list of embellishments beginning with those letters contained lots of randomness such as egg boxes and elephants, and then I made this;

Using the following ingredients;

Letter Stickers ¹see also O
Loopy Leaf die
Loveheart die ²see also V

Oil Pastel Paper
Orange Washi Tape
²Outline Stickers
Old Paper (Doodlebug from 2005)³see also V

Velvet Flocked Paper
Vertical Striped Paper
¹Very Old Sizzix Die
Vintage Button (So old, the company no longer exists(!))

Embossing Folder
Embroidery Thread

and the second card today is this one;

Made with card, letter stickers, sequins and peg from stash, Kesi;art and Paper Smooches  dies

Entering this one into;

Grey and Pink
