Time Out #23 Reminder

Hi friends!  Have your seen our Time Out Challenge?  We still have another week to go on this one.  The challenge is to make a Valentine's Day card with the option of using hearts.
I made another card for this challenge.  I did some watercoloring (sort of) for my background.  All I did was put some distress inks on my clear block, spritzed it with water, and smooshed my water color paper into it.  Once I dried it, I sprinkled some water droplets on it to remove some color.  I rounded the corners then cut it almost in half.  The sentiments were stamped then added the cup on dimensionals.  I added some little white hearts that were die cut from a larger die that I thought I was going to use, but didn't (these were the left over pieces from the die cut).  The larger red heart was put on dimensionals too.

The sketch was from last week's Freshly Made Sketches (I missed the deadline but this card was made before this challenge was over!). 
We have STAMPlorations sponsoring us this week, so there are prizes involved in playing our challenge this week.  Here's the deets:
1. Twist with us (use hearts) and we will do a random draw.  The winner will get a $15 voucher for the store.
2. Comment on Shery's post at STAMPlorations for this challenge and we will do a random draw .  The winner will get a stencil pack from STAMPlorations.
We also have a guest joining us this week...Valentyna (perfect name for our challenge too!).
You can see more from the design team on the Time Out blog.
