O.k. now to today's card! 

Today's card was inspired by the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. The challenge is to make a card with NO stamps. Yikes! But then I remembered this beautiful paper from the Occasions mini catalog that had this quote on it. I thought I would never be able to use that part of the paper. I love the quote and I love the look of the writing but how to use it? This challenge is perfect! And it could be used for a wedding or anniversary card. Doesn't have to be Valentine's! I cut the More Amore designer paper to size and layered it onto a piece of Primrose Petals then popped it up onto a card base of Basic Grey. Then I took a piece of Primrose Petals to the Big Shot and used the Hearts a Flutter framelits dies to cut a scallop heart. Then I used the smaller heart framelit die and cut it out. This heart "frame" is popped up onto the card. I used the small heart punch and punched a heart from Primrose Petals. This is adhered to the card and a rhinestone was added. I guess you can make a card with no stamps! Give it a try!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
