Sweet Bashful Valentine.......SSC136.....


The Stamping411 gals came up with another wonderfully versatile Saturday Sketch Challenge. The card came together quickly and then I hit a roadblock. Bashful Blue certainly lived up to its name - it seemed to be impossible to photograph its true color. All of the ensuing adjustments made me look at this card in a new light - in more ways than one! Now I'm thinking this sweet little Valentine of Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip could also be used to welcome a new baby boy.......
