Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card

Hello everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Well it's time for a new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenges this fortnight & the theme is perfect for this time of year............
LOVE IS ALL AROUND
...........see, how easy is that with Valentine's just around the corner ;-)
Ok here is my card, now the image would you believe I coloured up over 2 weeks ago & the base of the card I made up about a week ago. However I only finally finished it this morning.... things have just kept cropping up.
The papers I've used are Pion's 'Forget Me Knot 6x6' from the 'From My Heart ll Collection which is now discontinued, although this sheet is still available over at Live & Love Crafts.
I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine sewn them.

The flowers here are from my stash, the sentiment is LOTV 'Sentiment Tags'. Under the flower I have 2 Joy Crafts dies, 1 is the scroll & the other is one of the Vintage Flourishes Key die, which I then attached the LOTV tag to.
There is also Joy Crafts 'Vintage Swirl Leaf' die under there as well. These dies were some of the new dies I got from Noor Design UK last week.

This is the inside decorated, doily from my stash & the Butterfly is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey & I attached a 'Frosted Berry' cut in half to the centre & a MF Pearl.

This is the larger of the 2 Joy Crafts Key dies & I've hung another LOTV Sentiment Tag off it. The key got covered in Crackle Accents. I've also attached the 'XOXO' to the end of the key which was embossed with blue frantage. The chain I attached the tag to is from my stash.


The stamp is Magnolia 'You Are My Valentine Tilda' coloured with distress inks & markers. I also added some Fran-Tage around the image.
Up in the top corner you can see the 'Carpe Diem' which was from the 'Sending Love' die..
Some of the flowers are from LLC & the leaves are Joy Crafts 0331 & Joy Crafts 0037, both from Tracy's Noor Design shop here in the UK.
As I've said before I ordered on the wednesday noon & they were here Thursday............how awesome & fantastic is that!!!!!!!!!!!!
The beautiful lace & rose trim are form my favourite shop Live & Love Crafts. I used my Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page for the edgeing on the card. Doilies are from my stash.

Thats it form me my lovelies, but please pop on over to see my uber talented teamies...........and we also have our super talented new teamies joining us now. Pop on over to see their creations & give them a super warm welcome.

Ok I'm away now.........actually this is scheduled so I was away a few hours ago getting work done as I have a couple of commisions to do.
Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by it means so so much to me.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxx

Wow, Vicky, this is so stunning. I love following your blog and seeing all your gorgeous cards but rarely do I comment, I'm so sorry. I was blown away when I saw this one, I've been gazing at it for a few minutes and it's got me wanting to craft but I have to go off to my office job, arghhh lol. Keep those beautiful creations coming, you're inspirational, XOX Lucy

Awww...the first Pion sheet I ever held in my hand :-) Still love it, and it's always sad when favourites are being discontinued, but luckily one gets new favourites. Adorable vard.
