Another Valentine's Day card :)

Good Morning! It's cold here again. We're supposed to get 2-4" of snow before 3pm and then blizzard conditions this evening!!! Just remember, I grew up a Southern girl and this snow, although very beautiful, is COLD! So, I'll focus on the warmth of hearts today :)

This card was made for a SCS challenge (are you surprised :) For this one, you are given a featured scrapper and you look through her gallery and use one of her cards as inspiration for yours. Here is the link. And this card is my inspiration. Yes, it's supposed to look similar, you have to change at least a couple of things. My changes were the theme, the placement and the embellishments.

I started with white cardstock that I trimmed about 1 1/2" from the fold line of the front panel. Then I used a Martha Stewart border punch to get the scallops. I attached the Imaginisce Wild Hearts paper. I stamped the Love Bug from Stampendous on white and colored him with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, glitter pens and souffle pens so he really sparkles :) I cut him and the red Bazzill Bling out with Quickutz Cookie Cutters flowers dies and the paper pierced the scallops. Of course I added dew drops - Island Blossoms in the corners. The Be Mine stamp is from Studio G. The ribbon is May Arts Red Hearts/ white ribbon and is only $.40 a yard!

Another fun challenge. I'm off to see what the challenge for today is.
