Love is a Beautiful Thing

Love is such a beautiful thing, and I wanted to create a really pretty card to showcase the word "LOVE".  I started with a patterned paper that I painted on the edges with cream acrylic paint.  Next, I painted and glittered a Prima Tattered Angles frame as my focal point, and placed vintage music paper behind it.  I adorned the side of the frame with some torn and inked cheesecloth, inked lace, and some flowers and baker's twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The sentiments are from two different die-cuts.  First, I cut LOVE from a Top Dog Dies alphabet die, and I painted and glittered those.  Then, I cut the word LOVE again from the same patterned paper using a Frantic Stamper script love die-cut.  Love is such a beautiful thing; so I figured....why say it just once?

I'm entering my LOVE card in these challenges:

Scrapy Land Challenge Blog - Challenge #35 - Anything Goes - I used two dies (one of which is sold at Scrapy Land).   I used a Top Dog Dies alphabet die set, and also a Frantic Stamper Big Hand-written Love die-cut (sold at Scrapy Land - just follow link).
