My Sweetheart Valentine

Hello there!  Valentine's Day is about a month away, and I've begun making a small stash to deliver to the shop for sale.  If you live in South Jersey, head over to Arts Plus Gallery in Collingswood.  You'll find a great gift for your sweetheart, and some pretty cards, too.  {wink, wink}


If this wasn't so girly, I'd probably give it to my husband -- just to keep it in the family.  LOL  I really love how this turned out!  The pink cherub label and small round taupe flower are epoxied stickers from DCWV. A couple of pink houndstooth hearts, just lying on the craft desk, made their way on here.


The pink floral paper in the background is Anna Griffin (sigh).  I ripped out a page from K & Co.'s Flora and Fauna Ledger paper tablet, and I kept the torn edge the way it was.  Just inked it a little to shab it up.  The "LOVE" stamp and "my Sweetheart" stamp are from the same Fiskars set, All Year Greetings.


Edited to add:  I'm entering this at the brand new challenge, The Card Concept.  There are 6 design styles to choose from, and here are the colors that are part of the inspiration:  

I chose the Freestyle Collage style because of the random mix of elements I've used.  You can find descriptions of each card style for this challenge HERE.  

I so appreciate you joining me today!
