LOVE - Happy Valentine's Day!

This is my card for Card Sketch #31 for Sketches! {by Tamara}. I really love this week's sketch, and I love being a part of Tamara's card team! Tamara really does such a great job on her sketches!


This is a BIG card. It's 8.5" x 5.5". The "love" is a Lil Davis chipboard piece that I've had for a long time. It was distressed in a wood tone around the edges, so I covered that with a black Slick Writer. I added rhinestones to the letters. The heart is a Heidi Swapp ghost shape, and I attached it with brads. The ribbon is from Michael's, and it has two brads on it. The swirl is an Autumn Leaves stamp. I added some rhinestones to the stamped image. This is my husband's Valentine. I hope he likes it!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you have a GREAT day! Thanks for stopping by!
