LOTV - All the Best

Happy Monday, everyone! Since today is release day for LOTV, I thought I'd share one more card made with the new Timeless Victorian paper collection, one of the beautiful new products available beginning at midday today (UK time, so that's early morning U.S. time, no matter what U.S. time zone you live in).

I love this sentiment from Set 25, Handwritten Phrases because it's appropriate for so many occasions - friendship, farewell, hello, get well, good luck - and probably more that I can't think of at the moment. And seriously, how could I resist the beautiful shades of lavender and lilac and aqua in these papers?...

Sometimes I like to put sentiments in unexpected places or orientations...this time, it's up the left side next to a lacy trim die cut from one of the papers in the collection...

I used a series of heart shaped dies to cut a framed opening, and put another, smaller heart frame inside the larger one...

A small floral cluster in the lower right corner balances all the interest at the left side of the card and forms a visual triangle with the sentiment and the lilac bow. A single lily is surrounded with little lilac and aqua roses and an embellished leaf stick pin...

Patterned papers:   LOTV *new* Timeless Victorian collection
Sentiment stamp:   LOTV Set 25, Handwritten Phrases
Dies:   Xyron ShapeZ/Heart;   Papertrey Ink Heart Print;   Tim Holtz Vintage Lace
Punch:   Martha Stewart Rose Leaf          Flowers:   Wild Orchid Crafts
Leaf  stick pin:   Maya Road (embellished)          Pearls:   Recollections          Hug Snug seam binding

If you took part in last week's blog hop, remember to visit the Ideas to Inspire blog to see if you're a winner of one of three fab prizes.  The newest products will be available at the shop today. I suspect the site might be a bit on the busy side with this release if everyone heads over there at the "opening gun," but never fear, this release is worth the short wait! :)

Thanks for stopping in for a visit...I hope your week is starting with a smile!
