Morning all,
I was on such a great role until yesterday! Ugh came home from work with a sore throat which turned into a lovely fever! I can not stand being sick! So anyway didn't get a chance to post this card I made for Create with Connie and Mary's challenge of the week. Here was their sketch:
Create Sketches Portrait-015

I used the sketch as a basis for another of my Valentines. Here is what I came up with:
Hope you can see the gold embossing! My camera is still DOA and I have been using my iphone (its a totally amazing tool but I haven't even begun to tap into its abilities!). Here is my recipe:
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Paper: Everyday Elegance (new saleabration paper!!), Lucky Limeade and Pool Party
Embellishments: Gold Embossing powder, Versa Mark, lucky limeade organza ribbon and sticky back pearls
Punches: Small Scallop punch
Thanks so much for checking out my card! Here's to a healthier 2012!!

Love how you used the sketch and colors (so non-traditional) for a Valentine's card! I haven't used that set in ages! Love what you did with it! Thanks for playing along in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

I really like how you paired the Vintage Vogue set with the new enchantments designer papers. Very clever! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!
