A Very Valentine

Good Sunday to you.   I had such good intentions to get my challenge cards done in a timely manner this week and that just did not happen.  So yesterday I had the opportunity to sit down for awhile to craft and decided to make one card for a few challenges…which is quite a challenge itself.  Here is who I am playing with…..

GDP020 SIP-Tic-Tac-Toe-32-800


So needless to say, this card really had to go the distance for me.

I think I covered all the bases here.  I cased the Heart from the #GDP020 Case the Designer, choose the vertical column on the right (heart, pink, bling) from the SIP#32 Tic Tac Toe and followed the PPA color challenge.

The absolute star of this card is the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Dies.  To be honest, I was not completely sold on this at first but I did love the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and these were offered as a bundle as well as individually.  I can NOT pass up a bundle and I am so glad I didn’t.  This thinlit is perfect not only for Valentine’s Day but also weddings, anniversaries, birthdays….

The inside sentiment and the images on the envelope are from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.  As you can see, this bundle had everything I needed to create a pretty special Valentine card.

Hope you enjoyed this card.  I am really going to try to get my act together with these challenges, however, this last minute “fire drill” turned out pretty well.

Thanks so much for looking in on my project today.  If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.  I do appreciate your comments.
