For my card, I used the new All Occasion set along with the Occasion Frame Die. I started with some gray Core'dinations cardstock and used a Circle Embossing Folder to emboss on the card front. I then sanded the embossed image so that it would stand out a little more. I stamped the frame (from the All Occasion stamp set) onto some Aqua Mist cardstock and then cut it out using the Occasion Frame Die. I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock, punched it out with an oval punch, and then added glitter around the edges (it doesn't show up very well in the photo...sorry). I then stamped the both the large and smaller heart petal flower onto Coral Calypso cardstock and then fussy cut them out. The leaves are are paper pieced using Lucky Limeade (all from Stampin' Up!) cardstock. I embellished it with some matching buttons, silver ribbon, and silver sequins.
