Because I Love You ........Sometimes I look at you and........

A card for a challenge that may have already closed but then I will just have to wait and see. It came together out of lots of bits and pieces. I am hoping I came make the Wednesday Simon Says Challenge because it is certainly made from lots of layers. So lets see what I have here.
I started with a Papertrey die cut Frame cut from gold mirror card. Then I have added some diecut
leaves in vellum both the solid and outline leaves setting them up so that some are above the frame and some under.

I have stamped and white embossed the little flowers from the Ellen Hutson Hydrangea flower stamp and then watercoloured with blues and mauves and added a bit of Wink of Stella for sparkle. I have die cut some leaves from some watercoloured papers as well to add some green.

These have been layered up along the side. To finish it off I added the 'because' diecut also in gold mirror card a new NBUS together with a sentiment from the stamp set that came with the die. I stamped with gold ink onto a piece of cardstock that matches in with the flowers. A wee little sparkle heart finishes it off. 

This next card is very very CAS compared to the last. I wonderful stamp that I bought ages ago and I cant believe I haven't used till now. So it's NBUS but perfect for today as today is mum and dad's wedding anniversary, 65 years. In real life dad is the short cuddly one and mum the tall willowy one.
But the love is still there.

The sentiment is new and only arrived in the mail today and it was perfect so I just had to use it. Stamped then coloured with copics. Added the die cut XOXO and the sentiment for those who cant read it:

Sometimes I look at you 
and wonder how
I got to be so
damn lucky

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Gorgeous cards Aileen, super elegant on the first one and super cute and CAS on the second. It's our one layer challenge at Less is More however and looking at your card I'm thinking you've adhered the die-cut xoxox to the card base which makes it no longer a ONE layer. Thanks for sharing with us but I'm afraid we can't include it in our showcase or prizes. So sorry! x

Hi Aileen! The card with the couple hugging each other is so adorable and lovely. Although the image is slightly big, you have managed to keep the card CAS. I like your coloring as well. Thank you for playing along with us this week at CASology Challenge.
