A Sweet Valentine

Hello! I hope where you are it's warmer than it is here!!! The high temperature today is only going to hit 19 degrees F, and overnight it's going down to 8! I know some of you are in places that are MUCH colder! It's been like this all week -- I'm really ready for spring!

Enough of my complaining -- on to my card. This one is 4.5" square. I wanted to use my new set from My Favorite Things, Be Mine, so I paired it with this week's sketch challenge on the MFT Forum at SCS. The image is stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black on SU! Shimmery White cardstock and colored with Copics. I added some Liquid Pearls to a few of the chocolates for a little extra yumminess! The scalloped rectangle is actually two scalloped squares punched with a Giga Scalloped Square Punch. I overlapped them and covered the seam with some shimmery two-tone ribbon by May Arts. You may not be able to tell from the photo, but the narrow strip of Ruby Red cardstock is crimped.

Tip: a quick and easy way to add some texture to a project is to crimp part or all of a piece of cardstock.
This was the first time I used my new BasicGrey Two Scoops 6x6 paper pack -- I can't wait to show you some more of it! The colors are so sweet -- perfect for Valentine and spring projects!

That's all for today -- I'm glad you stopped by! Have a great day! :)
