Bird Cage & Banners, Ornate Hearts, Fancy Foliage Die sets
Hello friends! This week my card for Shining the Light challenge is double silver and purple hearts because the challenge this week is to do a Valentine in NON traditional colors! I embossed the large heart from the Bless Your Heart stamp set in silver with silver embossing powder and heat set.  I used the large die from the Ornate heart die set to cut out the silver scalloped hearts. I also used the Beautiful Border die set to cut the elegant silver fringe border.  The white background panel is embossed and I used some leaves from the Fancy Foliage die set in white above the hearts.  The sentiment "Two Hearts One Love" is from the Love Birds stamp set and the "I love you so much" sentiment on the hearts is from the Banner Sentiments stamp set and Bird Cage and Banners die set.
For more inspiration please visit my talented design team sisters:

"For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." Eph. 5:31  "Love is patient and is kind, love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek it's own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails...and now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." 1 Cor. 13: 4-8 & 13
