    With those stamps, (amazingly, a Unity set I don't have) I would probably make cards for my mom and kids and do scrapbook pages. They'd be great for Valentine's Day.

  35. Dear Emily~

    What a lovely romantic and loving card! Any friend would be blessed to receive this card. The flowers are amazing...as is the frame you have with the giant pearls around the Tower itself. I would guess that you have actually been there and perhaps fell in love with Paris, by all of the love and special embellishments...like that giant rose being used! Wonderful bow!

    Thank you for sharing!

  39. Wow, you can really tell the inspiration between the jewelry and your card. Great job! If I were lucky enough to win this stamp set I would use it to make cards for the troops overseas to send to their families, the "you and me" and "sending my love" with the winged envelope would be perfect for this.
