Deco Divas – Love is in the Air Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Deco Divas – Love is in the Air Blog Hop!  If you hopped here by way of April, then you are in the right place.  If not you might want to hop over to the beginning at Sparkle N Sprinkle to become eligible for one of the four great prizes. 

I chose to do Valentine cards for the hop and I just got done making a Cut File for this Diorama card and had to use it.  It was a lot of fun putting all the layers together.  You can find all the details here.  What a great way to display your cards for months to come!!

I was going to stop at one card, but this idea for the pink Leo had been in my creative mind for a while so I had to try it too:)  But only this time I used the Spellbinders Hearts to cut out the center shapes instead of the octagon.  I love adding the Dimensional Glue to Leo's mane and covering it with Flocking and this time was no exception...I covered it with Cherry Sparkle, Sparkle N Soft!  You can find out all the details herehttp://sparklensprinkle.com/g/view_photo.php?set_albumName=Valentines_Day&id=ahu.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment.....I love reading them all:)  Now hop on over to Brenda's blog to finish up the hop!
Happy Hopping!!

I love the idea of a diorama card. I have never made one (yet), but look forward to one day. I always thought they looked very creative and different. My mother has made a few of them and they are always beautiful. I love the coloring on Leo. It's perfect!

Your first card is especially lovely. The heart tree & birds with all the wonderful glitter is great. Leo did look good with pink. The sparklensoft on his mane was just the right shade.
