ODBDSLC224 Anything Goes!

Good Tuesday morning to you all!
This week's challenge is anything goes!
That totally cool, we can use any ODBD stamps and any subject we choose.
Well, it is getting too close to Valentine's "month" to do anything but hearts so...

ODBD stamps used: All Occasion Sentiments, Bless Your Heart
ODBD dies used: Mini Tags, Flourished Star Pattern, Ornate Hearts, Spendorous Stars
ODBD Papers used: Blushing Rose Collection
I used the Flourish Star Pattern die to "emboss" the kraft panel.  This is done by placing the die under the paper and using only the embossing plate and rubber over it instead of the cutting plate.  I also sut out some of the little stars from Splendorous Stars in ivory to add the the background.  I used 4 pieces from the Ornate Hearts die set to cut the hearts.  And then of course the mini tages to add an I love you!
Valentine's is such a sweet time of the year and it always reminds me of how we should love one another.  Jesus said time and again that the greatest commandments was to love God and to love people.  He told us to love one another that others might see Him in us and that we belong to Him.  There is no better one to belong to and to be in His care and His loving arms.  He loves us with and everlasting love.  A love beyond compare.  Let us love each other to help the world know what wonderful love Jesus has for them too!

What an elegant and gorgeous design, Robin!! Such texture and eye candy!! I just love the pink, your ruffled seam binding and all your layers! Absolutely stunning my friend!

Your card is incredibly dimensional! I don't know if it's just because the paper is die-cut in just the right way but it looks like a heart shaped pillow on your card - all soft and puffy. Amazing effect!

Robin, Your work is always so amazing, but you have outdone yourself this time. I know I am immediately drawn to that orange bow.
