Another Blue Valentine

The other day when I was making my IO entry, I also stamped the CAC Spatter with the 3 blue Distress inks on this white cardstock. Decided I may as well use it--save putting it away--LOL! Had to enter the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge since 
the prize is Jessi's crocheted mats & they're beautiful! My vellum flags are cut with MFT Fishtail Flags & the circles are Spellbinders.  The heart stamp is old, but one of my favorites from a company no longer in business.  I used my Sakura Clear Star pen for a bit of sparkle. The sentiment is by A Muse. 
Fairly flat, which is nice, as it's going in the mail. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Love your valentine card, Greta! Blue looks so frosty and crisp! You may be starting a new trend. "Blue is the new pink!"

Blue Valentine cards look 'fabulous' on you, my dear friend, as you create them with the utmost flair and pizzazz! The splatters are a perfect backdrop for the vellum tag and that swirly, twirly heart (swoon!). Such a striking combination! Enjoy Jessi's crocheted mats, because I KNOW they'll be coming your way!! Hugs~c
