Love Never Fails

Morning/Afternoon All!

I've had this Quick Quotes vellum quote sitting on my work table along with this scrap of paper for weeks now!  After reading a post my granddaughter just posted on her FB page I felt it was time I turned this message into a card. 


I created a frame using the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched dies to hopefully bring more attention to the quote itself.
Lawn Fawn - Large Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables Dies

I then used some very old, rarely used dies to embellish the corners.  
Those dies are Tattered Lace 'Ornamental Rose' which I die cut twice and layered in the upper right corner and the Frantic Stamper 'Trio of Swirls' was snipped a bit to adorn the lower left corner. 
 Frantic Stamper - Dies - Trio Of Swirls
Nuvo 'metallic copper penny' crystal drops were used for the prima flower center and upper left corner.
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Metallic Copper Penny


Here's another quick look at my finished card . . .

What a beautiful way to frame the quote. I have those swirly dies, too, and haven't used them in a while. Love anything swirly. Beautiful colors and papers and, oh, my gosh, I just realized I have those papers, too. Wow, I need to try this piece with copper. Nuvos are easy to get hooked on and I really love the copper. Hmmm... can I fit in a few more bottles of Nuvos? I just saw some of Diane's new papers and now I'm thinking I have to find room for a couple new paper pads, too. Does it ever end?

Darlene, this card is such a lovely way to present that verse. The stitched frame really draws your eye centrally, and I love those delicate die cuts that echo the stamped (?) flourishes. This is a perfect contribution to our current All You Need is Love challenge at Frilly and Funkie Hugs!
