My Love Will Never Stop Growing

Update (2/10/2016):
This card was chosen as a "Top 3 Winner" at the ModSquad Challenge blog!  Thank you!

I really enjoyed making this card with fairly simple stamping and stenciling!  

I sponged ink over my stencil, but I wanted to leave the lower left blank for my sentiment so I slowly built up color, leaving it lighter toward the card center.  I stamped the flourish directly on the card front, but then popped up the flowers and the butterfly's wings.  

This ink color, called Lipstick, by Gina K, is a little bit of a color chameleon.  It is a really bright coral, but it does change depending on what colors are around it and in different lights, as you can see in the photos below.  

I used some white and pink stickles on the butterfly wings.

I really like this particular stencil, because it is a heart
stencil, but it really does pass for leaves when you use green!

Oh, Heidi, this is gorgeous, and I love the colors! The flowers are lovely and perfectly die cut, and I love your stenciled background. And what a great and wonderful sentiment (my DH and I feel the same about each other). Hugs!
