Valentine Wishes in Blue

My sis loves blue & silver, so decided to use them for her Valentine.  Quick post before the entries close for the Impression Obsession Blue Challenge.  My IO stamps are CAC Spatter, CC059, Filigree Heart, C2024, Valentine Wishes, D5541.  I used watercolor paper & Distress Inks tumbled glass, broken china & salty ocean.  The silver is a satin embossing powder.  I added a few silver embossed dots to the background, too.  


Hard to believe, but I now have 100 people signed up to follow my blog. I didn't expect to ever have that many. Of course some of them no longer come by, but it's still a milestone to have had that much interest in the almost 2 years I've had this blog. Thank you all for the continued encouragement & sweet comments.
Edited to add: Also entering the SSS Monday challenge.

  2. Beautiful card! I love the splatter (I have to start using this stamp!). And your heart is beautiful, love the blues and how you used the oval but cut is off at the edge. Great job! I check on you too but I am not signed up as a follower. You do awesome work! Thanks for sharing.
