Heart of Blossoms, Creative Expressions and Sue Wilson

Hello and Happy Saturday!   It's my turn to post with the fabulous Creative Expressions Design Team and I've been playing around with the Heart of Blooms!

Here is the same card, BUT, prior to adding the extra rows of ribbon and hearts, prior to the glitter glue frosting over the blossom heart, and prior to adding the cut-out "LOVE" expression word. 
Which do you like better? The before or after? 

This card was inspired by the fabulous Fantails Embossing Folder.
Heart of Blossom LOVE Card Recipe:
  1. I randomly stamped this Heart of Blossoms image several times onto White Cardstock.
  2. Then, these stamped images were die-cut out with the Finishing Touches Hearts of Hearts Dies and layered over the Pink glittered Paper. (layered to resemble that fantails shape actually makes it look like balloons here! LOL)
  3. For the "LOVE" word, I cut just the word out of the "Expressions" Love die (twice), and placed these on top of my blooms layers. 
  4. The Ribbon was twice layered to cover my peeking Lattice Striplet Die-cut and the adorable tiny hearts row was cut from the Diagonals Love Hearts Dies. 
  5. The Ribbon was attached with hot glue and charms were hung from this bow with the narrower Pink Satin Ribbon. A sparkly CE Pink Dazzler tops this bow.
