Hi everyone! I was so excited to have this three-day weekend arrive and guess what? I came down with some sort of bug! I wasn't feeling that great all week, and then yesterday it hit HARD! I was on the couch all day! And today is better but not much! However, I did get down to my craft room to stamp later in the day.
Yesterday, while I was on the couch, I did get some productive commenting in and looked at some interesting challenges. I loved Mona's CR84FN color challenge of red, kraft, and brown...my type of yummy colors!I love sketches and the Card Patterns sketch this week caught my attention. So I combined the two and came up with this pretty Valentine's card. I started with this paper from My Mind's Eye called Lush. I remember seeing my fellow PMS member, Tina Hale, use it and had to order it. That was about 6 months ago! I was waiting for the perfect card to use it on! Now I changed the sketch a little (sorry Card Pattern team), but I wanted a heart on it for a Valentine card. The kraft on this card is from a Starbucks sleeve. I love my Chai tea and went out for a bit today to get some fresh air and my tea, so I decided to incorporate it into this card. The velvet button is threaded with some brown and white baker's twine. The sentiment is from an SU set called Grateful Greetings stamped in real red. I added the red glitter dots on the opposite side from the sketch because it suited my card better. I left the brown grosgrain ribbon hanging off the edge a bit...I just like that look!
Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
