Something Beginning with 'L'


Hello again, thanks for your visit. Today at Cardz 4 Guyz
our new challenge was chosen by me. Now and again we have a 
Something beginning with a letter challenge, it being close 
to Valentine's Day, I thought of Love, but there are many who 
aren't interested in the 'Love' cards so this helps them to 
choose their own design and purpose fo the card. 
The challenge then is Something Beginning with the Letter 'L'
Please pop over to the blog to see the wonderful artwork
from the Design Team.
If you scoll down I made a card for another challenge 
with this design but a different size.
I made a Kraft card, the red striped background is from a paper
 pad from The Works. The Kraft card from Jelly Bean Crafts.
I embossed the Kraft card in an embossing folder.
The word 'love' is from a £1 die from The Range.
The hearts  are from various heart dies from The Range and The Works.
