Quietfire Queen of Hearts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Quietfire Design Queen of Hearts Blog Hop!  We'll be showing lots of LOVE this week!  :)

Kathy Jo and I are starting off the blog hop this week.  Here's my card:

I made a wedding card for this gorgeous quote.  I used Spellbinders Arch One dies against a brick embossed background for a cathedral feel.  I then added a leafy flourish from Cheery Lynn dies and roses (instead of cutting off the wiry stem from the roses, I curled them around a small brush handle for a tendril look).  The vellum leaves were punched using Martha Stewart's frond punch and what's a wedding card without some pearls?  

I have to admit, it took me a bit to "get" this quote.  I guess because we'd like to think that love is certain - or at least one would hope so!  But here in the States, there's a commercial with this guy who says he's never getting married, then he's shopping for a ring, who declares that he's not having a kid, then he's in the labor room; never moving to the suburbs, then does; never buying a mini-van and voila - he's washing one... So in essence, you never know what your heart is capable of when you love someone.   That's my take on it, anyway!  :)  What's yours?

Isn't that Love gorgeous with all those flourishes?!
