The inspiration for this card came from the CR84FN Color Challenge.

 I just love the pink, yellow, and white colors and was particularly inspired by This card by Sue Lelli. Loved the little touch of red that was added in the pp.

I was looking at the colors and this heart stamp by Memory Box came to mind. The heart was stamped and colored using inks and markers from SU. It was embossed on antique linen card stock and that gives it a little distressed look. The colors were softened by covering the heart with Rangers Picket Fence Distress Stain. The distress stain was also used on the butterflies and the sentiment.

I love the way Tiffany uses doilies on her cards. I got a few packs on my last trip to Michaels and thought this one was perfect as a background for the heart.

Just went in to my craft room to get the numbers for the stamps used so I could share them with you and somehow the "Love" stamp has disappeared off the face of the earth. I have searched everywhere and can't find it. I was up in the middle of the night and decided to be productive and did a little cleaning in my hope that I didn't throw it away. Don't you just hate it when you can't find something that you know is probably hiding in plain site? The heart and butterfly are from Memory Box.
The butterfly is called Periwinkle B1181 and the heart is Daphne Heart #1422.

Thanks for your comments, I am feeling a little better today :).
