Non-traditional Valentine Card
TGIF!!!! I am so glad it's Friday - that means I can sleep late tomorrow! :-) I saw a couple of challenges that I wanted to play with this week, but I didn't have time to play until tonight after work.
I used this week's Sweet Stop sketch (#142) and the colors from this week's Color Throwdown challenge (#176) to put this sweet non-traditional Valentine card together. If you look closely at the images in the basket, you will see that they are heart-shaped scones. How cute is that?
This Basket of Heart Scones stamp is from I Brake for Stamps, and I colored it with Copic markers. The Curled Corner technique (Technique Junkies) was used to give this card a fun texture. I used Holly's Tattered Background stamp on the kraft layer along with the sentiment from the Every Day Phrases set (all from I Brake for Stamps). It was fun to play with these non-traditional colors - sort of manly yet sort of girly, too.
I wonder if I should give this to my husband next month or if I should give this to my grandparents?? Hmmmmmmm...........
