Be My Valentine! FMS70



My daughter has put in a request for a dozen baby cards. You can see how well that turned out!  I did pull out Marina Mist and Summer Starfruit to get started and then I saw some of the goodies I brought home from Leadership. I just had to open them up.  I randomly stamped the creped filter paper and then punched out circles and scallops to make the flower.  The Artisan Embellishment kit provided sweet details and before you know it I had a Valentine in my hands.......sigh.....guess that makes me zero for 12.........



But on a scale of 1- 10 Rita's Sketch is a 12!  So versatile - hope you play along at  Freshly Made Sketches this week!

Beautiful card Linda! I was wondering about that crepe paper... looks nice and I like how you stamped on it too. The good news is... you really could use these colors for baby cards :-) I would have not thought of Summer Starfruit and Marina Mist, but they go together so well. What color is that brownish layer?

Oh Linda! This is beautiful! I love those crepe paper flowers! Love all those added embellishments! My embellishment kit arrived today and before you knew it I had it open and my DT card for next week was not done...oh dear! Seems we have the same issue!!!!

Oh my beautiful!! Love this unexpected color combination! That flower is awesome!

That seems to be how it is going for me, too. I make things, just not what I'm "supposed" to be making! :-) This is awesome. Love the stamping on the filter paper!
