Valentine's Card 2012

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I have some new  and exciting news today. For the next several months, I will be part of the senior design team at Mark's Finest Papers ( a Heinrich company). I was so excited and honored to be asked to be a part of this team.

My card today is showing 2 new sets that will be released next week. I used the sets "love remains" and "sending happy thoughts". These 2 sets are just fabulous and perfect for your Valentines cards.

I colored the rose image with a combination of Copic markers and Stampin-Up markers.

My background was created using the Spellbinders "diamonds and stars" Impressabilities. I created a stencil effect using riding hood red ink.

I made this card for the color challenge #357 on Splitcoaststampers. Joanne was our hostess and she chose the color trio of blushing bride, riding hood red and baja breeze. It seemed like and unlikely combo for a valentines card, but I really like how it turned out.

I layered my rose image over a Cheery Lynn doily die cut in riding hood red.  Added some pearls and punched hearts to this layer.

I completed my card with baja breeze and riding hood red ribbon and a pearl center on the bow.

That's my card for today.  It's time to close this post. So until next time..........God Bless
