Saturday Spotlight -Love w/out hearts

Well, the weekend has begun! Welcome to this week's Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential challenge! Our challenge this week is to make a LOVE style card (Valentine, Wedding or such) without using any hearts! NO HEARTS! lol I made a wedding card! (again)

Our lovely sponsor this week is Donna's Den of Crafts! There is a precious gift voucher in the mix, so I hope you will play along!

The sentiment is CG and reads...
Love is a symbol of eternity.
It wipes out all sense of time,
Destroying all memory of a beginning
And all fear of an end.

Again, I won this DP, so I don't know which company, but I love it! I applied some faux stitching and a bit of distressing! I created three sparkly faux brads by affixing punched circles where I wanted them, dabbed a bit of glitter glue on each. After the glitter glue was totally dry I colored it with a black marker. Go head, have a closer look, you can still see the glitter! How cool is that, you can have any color sparkly "brads"!!

Checkout the rest of the fabulous Spotlight Diva's love projects...

I hope you're enjoying your Saturday and have some time to relax with your family! Abundant Blessings to you all!!!
