Love You Valentine

Hello everyone,

I'm well ensconced at Neeje's Crop Til You Drop so I've pre-posted today's card. It is a commissioned card for an unconventional colleague. I used this week's Inspirational Card Sketch challenge to get started and will take advantage of the Stampin' Royalty Hearts, Hearts and More Hearts challenge as well as Crafty Catz Valentines/Love challenge.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Rose Red, textured with Sizzix Ivy Flourishes and layered on a piece of gold of unknown origin. The three tiers are Stampin' Up Basic Black and more of the gold which were textured with Sizzix Birthday Surprise dry embossing folder. The top tier and the heart are DCWV Rock Star Stack. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Short & Sweet.

First up, this card is not quite as pink as the photo suggests. Saying my colleague is unconventional is putting it mildly but she is a really great woman. When I asked if she wanted a valentine with gold skulls and hearts she got pretty excited. She is a gold skulls and hearts kind of woman and I know she'll love this card.

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