I actually hand wrote the sentiment on this one. That took some courage. The maroon paper is a transparent sheet from a paper pack I bought a while back. It adds a cool dimension to the finished card. The flowers are die cuts from the same pack.
I hand wrote this sentiment, too. The buttons are supposed to shape a heart. I feel like the finished card looks a little busy, but I used it anyway. I think if I did it again, I'd skip the patterned paper and do a solid piece of cardstock with a textured background (either by embossing folder or by background stamp).
Hand wrote this one, too. I'm pretty confident with my cursive, but I'm still nervous with my print writing -- it needs work. I love the colors and the paper piecing.
I should mention that I get a lot of my card ideas from this blog. Kristina is a very gifted paper crafter and shares my style. I find a lot of inspiration on her blog.
