Moments That Take Your Breath Away

Are you doing anything nice for Valentine's Day? For me I think it'll be just another freezing cold day, nothing special planned, well what I mean to say is if I don't plan something special then it won't happen :( Spontaneity isn't one of my o/h's strong points unfortunately.

Today is cupcake day, yay! And it's my turn to choose this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge... it's called Entwined! The clue is in the title... I'd like you to use TWINE on your creation.

For my card I've gone for a romantic feel, being as it's Valentine's Day tomorrow. The sentiment is a digi I've had a while, which I teamed up with some lovely papers (not sure but think they're Anna Griffin) I got from my friend Nadia at A Scrap Affair. I've added some pretty seam binding, vintage french lace, die-cut hearts, pearls, cute heart button and of course some baker's TWINE!

We are sponsored this week by The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, who are giving away 50 metres of Divine Baker's Twine... oh yummy! Our second sponsor is Stamp Fairy who are giving away a generous $10 Gift Certificate! Pop by the Cupcake blog to see all the details on this week's challenge, and also to take a look at what the other Cupcake girls have come up with, thanks girls for doing such a great job with my theme this week!

Thanks ever so much for visiting, I love hearing from you all! Hope you have a nice Valentine's Day, whatever you do!

Oh my goodness hun, this is simply such a beautiful & adorable card!!! Just love the romantic/shabby feeling of it! Thanks for a wonderful challenge! Had great fun with it! Well, my hubby can be the same, or completly opposite.... I'm not sure whats worse...*lol* One time he tried to be all romantic with bubbly champange and a bath...That night ended up in the ER for me...*lol* Somehow i started to cough while i was drinking and it all ended up in the wrong place, i had trouble to breath so i tried to climb out of the tub and knocked down the glas, and ofcourse i steped on it....Spent that valentines night getting stitched up.... And it's not the only time...So i'm glad if i get a rose with no thorns...*lol* Have a fabbt day hun!!!

Oh quelle douce carte Shelly, j'adore la dentelle, et les coeurs, et les papiers....J'aime tout hihi ! Oh le twine, j'adore aussi cette ficelle !
Heureuse saint Valentin mon amie. Je ne fais rien de spécial en ce jour, des cadeaux, nous nous en offrons n'importe quand dans l'année, pas besoin de date spéciale pour y penser :-) Mais j'ai quand même fait une carte que je publierai demain hihi !
