Thinking of Valentine's Day yet?


I was lucky enough to sneak over to my scrap-happy place late this afternoon...& decided to create a Valentine. I'm pretty tickled with how quickly this came together...& how it turned out :o)

I used this card sketch from Sketchy Thursdays & their Second Chance Challenge: (super cute ippity by Unity stamps are up for grabs!)

A pretty funky sketch...but inspiring for sure! I just had to "tone" it down a bit! ha,ha!


And for the fun challenge site of Caardvarks (can't believe I just discovered this site-I can see that I might get addicted to this one too!): Red Heart Challenge


And for another challenge I found while blog hopping...Belli Challenge #83: Use hearts


So here's the card I came up with:






How fun is this??? I used empty toilet paper tubes to create the inked circles...I had been wanting to give this a try forever & finally found a sketch that it worked for! So easy & fun! Like I said, I toned down the sketch a bit...I just can't do GRUNGE...ha, ha!
Here are a few close ups too:


I used a red heart ribbon brad by The Paper Studio & a fun red bling heart that I picked up last year at Hobby Lobby. & of course, no card is complete without a little stitching :o)

Notice the "stamping tubes" in the background?

Supplies:

Pink scallop note card-$1 bin @ Target, white cardstock-The Paper Studio, Heart Ribbon Brad-The Paper Studio, Heart Bling-Hobby Lobby, Sentiment stamp-Inkadinkado, Journal w/ Brackets stamp-Stampabilities, Inks-Pink Passion & Real Red by Stampin' Up, Onyx by Stampology/Autumn Leaves, red tulle-recycled from Christmas gift wrapping, machine zig zag stitching

Thanks for stopping by! Take care!
