♥ Diamonds...pearls...hearts...love! ♥

I ♥ this week's challenge over at the Papercraft Star Challenge blog! It is a fabulous sketch! I had so much fun with this one, that I made 2 cards with it.
This first one is my favorite! I love all the pearls and "diamond" hearts. (Which I pain stakingly put on 1 by 1! Whew!) I used some beautiful papers by Making Memories, Graphic 45 and Creative Imaginations. Also some Prima and Martha Stewart flowers, MS punched butterflies, a small wooden heart drenched in pink candy glitter, pink satin ribbon and a Melissa Frances rub-on.
On the second card I used some Echo Park and Making Memories papers, Little Yellow Bicycle cut-out Lollipop, which I added some pink trim to, a Making Memories gem frame, red ribbon, a Melissa Frances rub-on and some felt hearts and a pearl heart.
Here is the awesome sketch:
I am also using this week's Tuesday Trigger from the Moxie Fab World blog for the 1st card. What a gorgeous photo! I was inspired by those candy hearts...hence my pink candy coated wooden heart!
I am also entering the 1st card into the following challenges:

~ City Crafter Challenge Blog: All you need is Love
~ Flutter By Wednesday: Anything Goes (with a butterfly!)
~ Crazy 4 Challenges: C4C72 Shabby Chic
~ {Cupcake Inspirations}: Challenge 96 This yummy inspiration photo!
The 2nd card I am also entering into this week's Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings challenge, Pink, Red and White theme.

Have a great day! Oh, and I will be having a great giveaway soon! ;)

Hugs...

Ooh, love your cards, Melissa! They are both fabulous! Can't decide if I like the elegant one or the playful one better, as they both rock. Best takes I've seen on that sketch so far. :)
