Glitz Elegant Love Cards

I'm not sure if it was the chick flick my husband Chase and I watched the other day, or the fact that he cleaned for me, or that I'm reading Pride and Prejudice again but I was certainly in a loving mood when I made these cards!

For the first card I wanted to use these amazing Vintage Paper Layer. I punched several stripes of scallops and layered them. I just can't seem to stop using this effect.
I finished off the card with Glitz's frosting and the black tiny round alphas.
Those little alpha are so fun and while I had those out and the black frosting I had to use them again. They are such great basics for any card.
I stamped one of the Fancy Frames on cardstock and cut it out. I just LOVE those frames. And this is one of the smaller ones, you should see some of the large ones!
The patterned paper is from the Distress Couture collection. I love how much drama it adds to the card.

Very "grunge pretty" Courtney. Did you actually glue tiny black pompoms onto the top of the first card? or is that the "frosting"?
I'm lovin' the look of these!

Wow, what a way to showcase your versatility with product! Love both of your cards, like the soft scallops on the first (great technique and I say if you love then keep doing it too!) and the boldness of your last, especially with the pom poms.
