LOVE letters!

It's Daring Cardmakers Day again and this week it's Beckie setting the challenge
What a great idea, we all thought....and then we realised how hard those letters actually were!

You are probably not surprised that it's going to be a LOVE card this week, but here is the twist ... it doesn't have to be if you don't want it to be, it could even be a birthday card of a thank you note ......
The dare this week is to use at least one item/product
 on your card beginning with each of the
 letters L.O.V and E.

What a great idea, we all thought....and then we realised how hard those letters actually were!  I started by making a list of things that started with each letter - it wasn't a long list, but I came up with a few ideas where I could use maybe 3 of the letters but not the other one.  I really really wanted my E thing to be an elephant, but I couldn't come up with how....

In the end I made this
My LOVE items are: Lace, Ombre (paper design), also Orange for the flower, Vine (Honeysuckle Vine die) and a mini Envelope
Materials and Tools
All papers: Spring Wedding Download (Funky Hand) - designs printed on white Bazzill card
White cotton Lace
ready-made mini card and envelope
Tiny orange gems, pc generated mini sentiment
Honeysuckle Vine die (Memory Box)
Heirloom Rose die (MFT DieNamics)
Blossom punch (SU)
Tiny coiled roses are hand cut

I cut the vine die a couple of times from green to give extra twirly bits to the main vine and to adding behind the various flowers.
The die was also cut in the pink papers so that I could add the dimensional flowers to the vine and have extra ones to put near the large flower. 

 Please pop over to the DCM BLOG and see how inventive the team have been this week
Thanks for visiting

Beautiful flowers and you did really well coming up with things for the letters. I've got ideas for each letter but no coherent whole at the moment - hope I get chance to consolidate and play this week!
