Die cut and pattern paper thank you

Sentimental Sunday has a challenge to use die cuts.
I was happy to do this because I haven't used my Nestabilities sets as much as I want to.  I had this embossed thank you sentiment for some time in my stash.  I used "Labels Three" and cut out 4 shapes.  Edged them in Whisper White ink from Stampin Up!  Added a little Creative Memories flower sticker.  And finished it off with liquid pearls (which I am not great at using yet but LOVE the look!!)

Do You Stack Up wanted us to use patterned paper.  I have so many pretty papers and just went thru them til I found one to use with my purple THANKS.  I love blue and purple together.  Makes me so happy.  I layered my pretty patterned paper on solid purple card stock and voila:

Thanks for swinging by!

Hearts on the mind

Stampin' Sisters in Christ wanted a heart to be the focus and that's exactly what was on my mind as I started a birthday card for someone whose birthday is in February.  I loved the card so much I did a "Just a note" card too.

I used a Sizzix embossing folder called "Elegant Lines" from Stampin Up! with my Big Shot.  
Birthday sentiments and gift are clear stamps from Hampton Art.
'Just a note' stamp is also clear from Studio G.  (I love how the swirls match the embossing.)
Heart punch from Stampin Up!  (My first time using it! LOVE IT!)
Pink ribbon from a craft store and the black/pink ribbon is from a Target dollar bin.

Thanks for swinging by!
