You Hold the Key to my Heart....

JustRite is releasing some fabulous new sets after the first of the year.......here is a sneak at one of them. This is the Romantic Sentiment's set. Just in time for Valentine's Day! This set is so versatile because it can be paired with the new Square borders or 1 5/8 round borders. For today's card though, I used neither. : )


Instead I used a chipboard frame from Tattered Angels. I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist and then applied Crystal lacquer over it. I then sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds. I stamped the JustRite sentiment on a piece of Fancy Pants paper, placed the frame on top, and cut the excess paper off. The rest of the card is Basic Grey and Fancy Pants paper. I did a bit of stitching, added a great big Papertrey bow, some rhinestones, and a key.

Head on over to the JustRite blog for more inspiration and a sneak at another new set. (I will be posting many sneaks here over the next week or two as well!)

Heading to my Gram's today. It is always a bitter sweet visit. This was a woman who participated so actively in life up until a few years ago (She is 89) when Alzheimer's robbed her of much of her memory. She doesn't remember the kids, but she does know me, my mom, and sister still. Which is good.......... : )

I really like the way you have combined all the different elements on this card - the sentiment is lovely.
The whole set of sentiments are really nice.
