LOVE block

Did I mention I was chosen to teach at convention this year?  After four years of trying, I got help from my upline, and submitted something worthy of CTMH.  I'm really excited and nervous!!

The third side of my blocks highlight the word "LOVE".  This is another word that can hang out on the mantel year round.  This word uses the Sweetheart Paper packet, sponging around the all papers with black ink.  The letters L, V, and E use the back side of the striped paper.  The O has three other papers in use.  Let's dive a little deeper...

 Another simple letter.  I used the red assortment sparkles and Cranberry ribbon here.
Here, I layered dimensional heart elements on topf of each other.  I got this idea from Pnina and a card swap she did at Kay's meeting (thanks, Pnina).  :)  Because of the high layers, I put foam tape underneath to retain the level of the letter.  The black is all from the black mini-medley accessories and include a button, brad, ribbon, and corduroy brad.
 Here the Just Blooms flowers take center stage even though they are in the background.  This paper is wonderful because Tulip (here) and Cranberry (letter L) both look great!  The heart is a dimensional element covered in B&T paper.
Another simple letter.  :)  The flower is from the Red Button Assortment and the tags are from the black and tulip mini-medley.  White hemp is tied in a bow.
