ABC Design Blog challenge. Over at ABC Toys and Crafts there's a wonderful challenge 'I Love You..... Sweetheart' and ofcourse I've wanted to use these wonderful new Paris stamps from there too! Well what can I say except when I'm stuck for fancy borders my Martha Stewart Doily lace punch comes in handy all too often, best buy I ever made!!!! Used paper from The Creative Cottage 'fairy Wishes' download onto thick paper for this pouch, a subtle hint to the destination for my hubby...I think I'm dreaming...the template used is from a straight forward door hanger folded in half, bag that you use to protect your cards, stapler and lace from stash, don't forget the chocs. Heart came with a mag and is slightly embossed and foiled, a couple of stamped roses and leaves from an old See D's set and all ready. I've seen some really pretty roses on crafty blogs, they're on my wish list amongst other things. The ring of flowers is made from a single stamp, just following a circle and cut out. I don't have any fancy die cuts but I improvised for this. This is my entry for ABC challenge 'N for new', Digital Tuesday #44 'Try a different fold', Papertake Weekly 'Love Actually', Creative Card Crew #44 'Valentines', Simon Says Colour Inspiration challenge and Fab n Funky #9 'Emboss it' (red heart). Sorry for long post but i do like to link up and give credit where due, it takes me a long time but worth it, happy crafting all!

...the back...simple!
