Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I hope you are all staying warm!!  The days seem to be getting colder again and it looks like a freezing ice storm is predicted here for tonight into tomorrow.  I may be iced in...

Today I would like to share a card I made for this week's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD which is to make a Valentine's Day card or a card with the Love theme (Anniversary/Wedding), that does not use pink or red.  So for my creation I used lavender and purple.

Our Daily Bread Designs, Love you Bunches, Lavender, ornate hearts, beautiful borders, elegant ovals, Chris Olsen

Card Recipe:
Paper: Neenah White, lavender, purple, scrap dp from my stash
Ink: Lavender, Concord Grape, Garden Green, Black
Embossing Folders: Sizzix x and o's, Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Poppies

Absolutely beautiful card Chris! Love all the layers and the lavender in the heart - gorgeous! Hoping you're keeping warm - I cannot really imagine what it must be like - we don't get snow where I live (I've never even seen snow!) and its sitting around a nice warm 30 degrees celsius (86 F) at the moment.
