Stylin' Love Cards with Courtney Baker

There seems to be a lot of talk about styles lately, and usually my style is like a moving target. I like to play with different types of styles. So for my two Glitz cards I did just that, played with styles. Both are "LOVE" cards, but two different styles.

For the first I went all out on the glam factor. Lots of red and black and even a little bling!
Don't you just love that frame? It's actually the Fancy Frames Rub-on. I was instantly in love with those frames, but it's one of those things I've had a hard time using it since I like them so much. Thankfully I still have two more.
for my second card I thought I'd play around with the Shabby side of things. I think the Vintage Love Whatnots are the perfect starting point.

I simply added a few buttons, a dyed doiley, and ribbon, but it all started with that great heart! It's a pretty interesting color combo, but I'm really happy with how the soft colors play against the green, brown and black.
