Love

Today finds me thinking about Valentine's Day.  It's just over a month away.  The colors from the Sunday Stamps Challenge were perfect for a Valentine card.  I combined it with the great sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.

The card base is Whisper White Thick cardstock.  At first I had a layer of Crumb Cake but it just didn't look right to me.  So, I grabbed a piece of patterned paper from the Love Blooms Designer Series Paper Stack.  Then, I added a layer of Blushing Bride.  The small hearts are punched from Crumb Cake and Watermelon Wonder using the heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  The larger heart was punched from Whisper White using the Sweetheart Punch.  The love sentiment is from the Hello Life stamp set.  It's stamped using Crumb Cake ink.  I used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush to add some shimmer to the small hearts.  It doesn't show up well in the photo but it's very pretty in real time.  I added just a little bit of bling to the right of the sentiment in the form of a rhinestone.


The colors I used are from the Sunday Stamps Challenge.
