#174 Valentine Card

Well it is time for a new challenge over at and this time around it is my good friend Sandy's turn to choose. Sandy has decided it would be fun to get all LOVED up so lets all make a valentines card.

Here is my take on the challenge

I am such a huge fan of Verve stamps and I saw a similar card made by Julee Tilman I just loved its simplicity I just had to have a go myself. I made a couple of alterations and I used up my very last bit of this lush red flower trim.
The stamps are from Verve and I used side kicks and wings of love along with the heart banner die.
I cut the wings out twice and trimmed off a little then popped it up. Then I stamped and embossed the heart and cut that out with the wavey heart die. I stamped the love and cut it out with a tiny oval die of Verve's.

Here is another card I decided to make for this challenge, not quite so CAS.
 The background paper I have had for years and couldn't think when I would use it but hey here it is lol. I de-bossed it first with Sue Wilson's heart folder, then added different papers on red mats. On one I wrapped some lovely sparkly gold ribbon around along with some lace, then added a huge bow. The heart is a Spellbinder die. I added two different sentiment stamps along with a few more hearts.

Now it is over to you, make a valentines and link it up to the site and you could be our next guest designer.
