For A Real Sweetheart

Good morning!  Today's card has been through some transformations as you will see.  I had such a hard time making this card come together.  The only thing that I ended up with that is the same as my original idea is the main image.  The paper, pink scalloped circle, white doily and swirls, etc were all added as the day went on.  It seemed as though everything that could go wrong DID.  Computer glitches, printer stopping mid-printing, etc.  But I was able to get the card done in time to go in today's MTME Pretty Patterns challenge post.  *whew*

Then I decided to add some  more fancy stuff - some pearls around the heart and some flowers... and even embossing the little pastry with clear embossing powder!


In the view below you can see how shiny the white doily and swirls are.  I also added some shiny to the pastry with my Gelly Roll (Sakura) "clear star" glitter pen.


In the view below you can see how pretty the pearls are.


And finally: I like to show the layers and 3-Dness (I know, not a word... but it describes what I want to show, right?  lol) of the card.


Thank you for stopping by!  I appreciate each visit and comment.  I hope you stop by the MTME Pretty Patterns challenge blog and see what the other design team members made for you today and it would be great if you played along!
