It's all about love

I love LOVE! 
Don't you all?  It's an amazing feeling, and often an amazing accomplishment!
My hubby and I sometimes have to work really hard at our love,
and other times it's super easy!
Wait, maybe that's our relationship!
Anyways, sometimes I like to make him a card, and leave it on the windshield of his car
so when he comes out from work there is a surprise for him!
I made this cute card last night for him!
I used the encrusted jewel technique that I found on the Stampendous blog
and that's their challenge for this month!
I bet when you hear jewel you automatically think girly girl right??
I think it's all about the colors, and I think even guys
like something shiny and pretty every now and then!
You can see the flecks of mica and large pink glitter that are standing out
against the embossed background!
It's really pretty cool looking
Then I stamped the butterflies and sentiment using a Unity Stamp Set
I stamped in white on the black paper, and it of course gives that chalkboard look!
Finally I finished it off with some washi tape.
Just a few strips gives the card a real finished look!

What are you creating today??
I'd love to see it!
