You Make My Heart Melt

Hello good morning, today's card was made for this weeks challenge on Cute Card Thursday. The theme is "Mirror Mirror" to add something shiny. My first idea was to cut the center of the Alota ruffled heart out and use some embossed metal sheets in the back. However.. for some reason i just did not like how it looked with the colors of the Designer paper and
the more girly feel of this card. I used instead some Vellum and added lots of shiny rhinestone stickers and really sparkly Prima flowers to the card. Usually i do not have sentiments in the front of my cards, but here i wanted to fill up the "empty" space and instead of adding an other flower i created a "flag" like i have seen on my friend Anita Hagen's blog.

I was about to finish the card with a stamped image in the inside but i ran out of time to get my pictures done for the posting this morning lol
Magnolia: Tilda sitting Pink 2009 Collection, Sentiment: Amuse Art stamps
Paperes: My Minds Eye, Stampin up
Other: Nestabilities, Rhinestone stickers, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
