My Craft Spot Inspiration - My {Heart} Belongs To You.

Hello Everyone! 

Thank You for joining me today for some My Craft Spot Inspiration!

Today I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you using the My Craft Spot "Always & Forever" Stamp Set. 

When I saw a valentine card by Monika from M.A.D. Stamper, it automatically reminded me of the "My {Heart} Belongs to You." Sentiment - which happens to be one of my FAVORITES from the set - and both became the inspiration for today's card.

I based the card on the current Clean & Simple Stamping Sketch #223. I tried to keep it quite simple, but honestly THIS is as simple as it gets with me - I LOVE my details!

I created a Window Card, by taking my Spellbinders Nestabilities Lg Circle Dies and cutting out the window. I then suspended the heart cut from the Cricut Craft Room Basics at 1-3/8" with some white thread - normally you'd use a piece of clear fishing line, but I didn't have any one hand.

I then embellished the heart with a small pink mulberry rose and a  "Black" Twinery Twine bow - available HERE at My Craft Spot.

I also added some "Cotton Candy" Stickles(GLITTER) around the edges of the Heart and a few clear Rhinestones(BLING) to fit this week's My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #83 BLING IT UP.

The inside of the card was stamped with the "Happy Valentine's Day" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Build A Valentine" Stamp Set. 

I hope I have inspired to use the My Craft Spot Stamps in a Fun and Creative way.
