Second Love

 Hi Stampers,
Today I have something fun to share with you.  I've been working on this for a couple of weeks and it finally came together this morning.  I saw the crocheting on cards on Pinterest (just gotta love it!) and was playing around with it.  This new stamp set Amore from Sparkle n Sprinkle was sitting on my desk so I made an ATC card with it and embossed with Gold Detail, then sponged the edges and embossed those as well.  Then I mounted it on some Authentique Paper and used my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes around the border.  Then I took crocheting thread and made the lace border.  It came out soooo cute!  I was going to put it on a card, but then decided I wanted it on a scrapbook page, then it would last longer! lol  My dad just recently got married and thought the photo would fit well with the sentiment.
 I had some roses sitting on my desk that I made last week and added them.
 The hearts are some retired dies from Spellbinders.  And the lacy heart around the picture was cut with my Pazzles as was the title.  I embossed both the heart die and the lacy heart with the Gold Detail also.

 Before I put everything down on the base layer I rubbed some Gesso on the paper and stamped the Music Background stamp with Rich Cocoa ink.  Here are a few more close ups!

Thanks for looking...have a great day!
Rubber Hugs,
