Prickley Pear Mondays - Heart Key Crown Clear Stamps

Happy Monday dear friends!!!  It's a cold and snowy day today, but my heart is warm inside!!  My baby turns 20 years old today.  How can it be that my boy is 20?  Man, it make me feel old, but in all honesty, it doesn't matter.  I have been blessed with such wonderful kids and I have enjoyed growing up myself along side of them!!  If you are the praying kind, please be praying for my boy....his deployment to Afghanistan draws closer each and every day.  Sigh.  It is almost more than I can bear.  Thank goodness for those who will pray with me!! I appreciate each and every one of you!!

Today I have another fun card for you using Prickley Pear Heart Key Crown Clear Stamps Set:
These stamps are perfect for so many different kinds of cards.  I decided to stretch my wings and try a clean and simple card.  So different from my usual style, but I had fun making it just the same!!  I used CASE Study challenge #73 for the inspiration for today's card.  This month's Muse is Jen Rzasa and I had a blast creating a card inspired by her amazing creativity!!!
I used some leftovers from my CupCards {to go} kit to make this card.  I just love the red card bases included in the kit.  So very Valentinesy!!
I used my Papertrey Ink Alpha Blocks Die to create the windows in the top layer of the card.  I adhered the windows to the card base with dimensional adhesives to add depth.  I stamped the hearts with several different inks and fussy cut them out and glued them inside the windows.  I stamped the I've Fallen In Love sentiment under the window and added some ribbon and jewels.

Supplies Used:
Prickley Pear Heart Key Crown Clear Stamps Set
Prickley Pear  I've Fallen In Love
CupCards {to go} Valentine's Kit (on sale this evening!!)
Papertrey Ink Alpha Blocks Die
PTI Fresh Snow Twill Ribbon
Jewels from my stash

Thanks for stopping by!!
Hope you have a wonderful Monday,
