Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge


I used unusual colors for a valentine type card, which was not planned but as I added each element it came together that way.  I started with a desire to create my own background pattern paper.  The temptation to add buttons or a ribbon was overwhelming, however in the end I left it as is.

SUPPLIES

Stamp Sets:
Love Lives Here (flower in background pattern and on circles in the middle of the two flowers on the heart as well as the heart stamp on the background pattern paper), Cable Gram (text on heart)

Ink:
Versa Mark, Avocado, Scarlet Jewell

Paper:
Avocado, White and Scarlet Jewell Card Stock as well as avocado pattern pack (dotted paper)

Accessories:
Winter White Embossing Powder, Embossing Gun, Journal Die #8, Heart Print Dies, Song Birds Die (flower), Double Ended Banner Dies, Dimensionals, Cuttle Bug Machine
