Love is in the air

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps 
Hello Everyone! 
I hope you are having a fabulous week~
I have had a busy week trying to squeeze in a lot of things since my hubby and boys are gone on their annual fishing trip. I have spent a lot of time with my daughter, daughter in law and the 3 grand much fun! I also made a quick visit back home to spend some time with my folks.  I did managed to squeeze in a little bit of crafty time to, yay! This week has just flown by...can't believe it's Friday tomorrow, yikes!

So, today I have a pretty card to share today using some fun stamps and dies from My Creative Time.  I used the Stitched Squares Inside & Out die set for the base and base layers of my card. The base is water colored with tattered rose and victorian velvet. The outside edges are embossed with Sweet Stamps~Fantasy Silver. I then used TH layering stencils and texture paste to add texture. 
I then followed with the next two base layers and then with foam tape adhered the heart in place. The gorgeous heart is Memory Box~Glorious Hearts and Vidalia Heart dies. I just love the Vidalia~so intricate and delicate. Tucked beneath the heart is tack cloth and Memory Box~Chandra Stems. 
The sweet little butterflies are My Creative Time's~Mini Butterfly  dies and some covered with Sparkling Ice glitter. The love is My Creative Time's~Love  die and the sentiment is from The sky is the limit stamped onto a Vintage Stitched Label  die.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
2.) Let's Craft and Create Challenge #114 Hearts and/or Flowers
3.) DL.ART June Linky Anything Goes
