HEARTFELT SYMPHONY

I once again decided to take up the Paper Players on one of their challenges, a sketch set
forth by LeAnne.

Last week I received my most recent Stampin' Up! order in which I had ordered the new Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing folder. I could hardly wait to get it in my
hands and play with it.

Loving to use music in my work, I decided to fill some of the cells with hexagons of music.
I then turned it into a Valentine by adding the gorgeous heart from the You Are Loved
stamp set. (sigh -- don't you just love the images in this set?)

One of the newest In Colors, Raspberry Ripple, joined up with black and Naturals White
to result in a pretty classy card.


I added Basic Pearls to the centers of a few of the flowers. Then, to add a bit more dimension and interest, I stamped the bird on Naturals White, cut it out, and popped it up over the bird 
on the heart with a piece of Stampin' Dimensional. 


Here is the sketch my Valentine was based on:


Smiles.
