|Sketch By Alexandra|
Next to Christmas, Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. I sent a lot more Valentines this year, so my stash needs rebuilding. It always seems to be upon us right after the holidays, so I'm going to make them all year. Besides, I had to try out my new Lil' Inkers Smooches stamp set I won last month. My wonderful blogging friend, Alexandra, provides tons of inspiration including sketches. This is one of her newest ones & I was immediately drawn to it--simple yet unique. The dry embossed panel is from a 12x12 piece I bought before I had any embossing folders, which are now overflowing their box--LOL! I love doilies, but don't seem to get them onto my cards very often. This scrap I saved worked perfectly here. My white cardstock scraps are taking over the house, so it was good to make use of a few. Muah is stamped in Memento Rhubarb Stalk & XOXO is white embossed. I used emboss resist for the sentiment using the same ink, hand trimmed it into a flag & mounted it with foam tape. Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles was used on the card front.
My card is flat for mailing as I used some Rain Dots for embellishment. I'm entering challenges at Lil' Inker, Virginia's View, Pixies Snippets Playground (just for fun--not the drawing), Addicted to Stamps. Thanks for your visit--I always love reading your comments.
