Flights of Valentine Fancy

It's the first Saturday of February & that means a new challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Are you working on Valentines?  If you make a card with a Penny Black image & use a heart you can enter this month.  My card uses the sweet Valentine Dance stamp which was given to me by a dear friend.  

You may recognize the background since it's another piece I made by inking the Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Feather Illusion folder with Distress Paints seedless preserves & spun sugar--a technique I saw on Alexandra's blog HERE.  I randomly swiped on some Distress Stain Brushed Pewter.  The butterflies are stamped in seedless preserves & over-stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer on vellum mounted to white cardstock. The sentiment is also stamped on vellum using StazOn Jet Black.  The hearts were colored with a pink marker before adding Stickles.  Finally found a use for the little stickers with silver hearts.
Work day for me, but I'll catch up on my blog reading soon.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
Edited to add:  Entering the "H" challenge at SSS Monday & Anything Goes at Loves Rubberstamps.
