Crafty Valentine

Hello everyone,

As much as I love doing Christmas cards, and have vowed to keep at them, Valentines Day is fast approaching and I need to build up the stash. I found a new blog challenge for today's card, City Crafter provided a great sketch that I used as a jumping off point.

The background paper is Making Memories Love Struck. The ribbon is from American Crafts which is layered on a strip of Stampin' Up Rose Red. The image is TPC Studio Hugs & Kisses stamped on Very Vanilla and layered on a scrap of Rose Red. The heart is Sizzix Embosslits Scalloped Heart of Hearts in Very Vanilla. The brad is Recollections. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Short & Sweet.

I'm pretty pleased with this first Valentine of the year. I used a couple of leftover elements from last year with a sketch that brought is all together easily. I really love the business of the background paper, it really reminds me of a patchwork quilt which fits the 'crafty' aspect of the card.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
