Valentine's Card


I had to make this card round a friend's house so hubby wouldn't see it. There are a few challenges about valentines, love and hearts at the moment, so thought I would enter this card. The challenge at Daring Cardmakers is to include a heart on your card. At Charisma Cardz challenge 3 is 'All you need is Love'. At StampARTic the challenge is to make a Monochromatic Valentine's card and finally Challenge 15 at Lili Of the Valley is a Valentine Card.
I found the stamp in the bargain bin at my local craft shop, so not sure what she's called, but she's beautiful. I stamped her with red versafine. All 3 backing papers are DCWV stippled with dark red ink. Embellishments and ribbon added from stash.

I can't believe you found that stamp in the bargain bin. You have made it look like a really expensive one the way you have put the card together :)
