Creative Embellishments February Challenge!

Time for a new challenge at Creative Embellishments!  I love the vintage photo inspiration this month; you can go in a lot of directions with this.  As you can see I took off on the pink rose and kinda went wild with color! 
I started out with a tag from the Large Tags set and painted that with white gesso.  Then I used Ken Oliver's Color Burst to create that vibrant background.  I am just loving these brilliant bursts of color!

  The twist calls for handwriting so I stamped a script stamp onto white card stock, also colored with Color Bursts.  Then I cut it to fit in the Leafy Vine Frame colored with Lindy's Starburst Mists.  I heat embossed the It's Our Time words with Stampendous Shabby Chic White embossing enamel and fitted that inside the frame.

At the bottom I used the Heart Flourish to frame the word, love, from the Hope Word Set both of which were heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Chic White embossing enamel.

To finish it off, of course I added some pretty flowers and a bow!
