Valentine Greetings





The color combination featured at Embellish Magazine blog was PERFECT for my first valentine card of the year! The Embellish Hearts Color Challenge includes the colors red, black, and pink. I used Stampin' Up!'s Real Red, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink along with the addition of several punched hearts.
Even though I found this amazing color scheme, I still needed a workable layout for my creation. Anne's (Ardodd) gallery at Splitcoaststampers was just the direction I headed in after learning that she was the Featured Stamper #251. Congratulations, Anne, and thanks for the inspiration:)





Stamps: Grateful Greetings
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White CS, Real Red Textured CS, Night & Day, Kaleidoscope, & Jackpot DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Scallop Edge, Full Heart & 1" Circle Punches, Button Bouquet, Linen Thread, Fire Square Rhinestone Brads, Mistletoe Ribbon Originals

Girl, you are on fire! Your break from stamping/blogging must have been a boon for your creativity! This is so cool---I want to try this for my stamp club!
