Love and a Big snowflake

This first card kind of ended up by accident!!!
 What I mean about that is that I was sitting at my desk and I keep bits of this and that around, things that didn't fit what I was using them for.  I picked up the little strip of border punched white cardstock and added the paper tape to that.  Then I picked up the golden yellow die cut word, "love", and thought that would work just right with these two. 
 I had just picked up this embossing plate on my last Michaels visit so I needed to try that out too.  I finished with the black heart.  That is a wooden heart, colored with a Copic marker and then coated with Glossy Accents.  I loved how it also fit with the CAS(e) this Sketch.
 Here is the CAS(e) this Sketch.
And this is for the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.

 For this card I wanted to use the retro sketch.  This big snowflake seemed like a great starting point.  The blue strip of cardstock is sprayed with a white spray ink.
 I love using Distress Stains so I picked up two colors and applied both of them to the stamp.  These stains have a dauber top so this is so easy.  I spritzed the stamp with water so the colors would run a little bit, then stamped it. 
Here is the retro sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
