Masculine Valentine

I loved Time Out's photo inspiration #102, and combined it with SUO's invitation in challenge #193 to use 'hearts a'plenty' to make a card for my husband for Valentine's Day. I hope he'll like the bold composition and colours (or at least will be too polite to say if he doesn't!)
The card:

Made using:
Stampin' Up paper (Cajun Crazy, Gold, Basic Black and Pop of Pink dsp) ink (Basic Black), dies (Sweet and Sassy, Celebrate You), enamel hearts and stamp (Thoughtful Banners for 'love')

Framed Butterfly

I loved the colour combination in Hand Stamped Sentiment's challenge #282 and utilised Freshly Made Sketch's challenge #322 to showcase them. I love the sentiment, and followed its instruction as I made the card!

Made using: Stampin' Up paper (Rose Red, Cherry Cobbler, Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Love Blossoms DSP), ink (Rose Red, Cherry Cobbler, Perfect Plum (pen)), 
Also: francheville rhinestones, Sizzix Thinlits 'Hello Summer' (sentiment), Kaisercraft Flutter dies

Flower Garden

I'd kind of forgotten about the Stampin' Up Beautiful Bouquet stamps until a friend reminded me the other day. Once I looked at them again, I wanted to use them - and CAS(E) this Sketch's Challenge CTS #257 and Colour Throwdown's palette #478 gave me the chance.
The card:

Made using:
Stampin' Up stamps (Beautiful Bouquet), dies (Bouquet Bunch), ink (Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Black) and paper (Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist)
Other: francheville pearls
