Love is in the air...

...or at least that's this week's theme over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  This weeks challenge is a photo inspiration...check it out:

I decided to design a card for this challenge using my inspiration sketch for this month.  In case you missed it, you'll find it at the top of the page on the "Monthly Sketch Inspiration" tab.  I promised I would show a design each week that uses this sketch, so here we go...

Valentine's card for HSS152 and for February's monthly inspiration sketch featuring the Madison Avenue and That's the Ticket stamp sets.
Kinda pretty, no?  I love the way the medallion image from the Madison Avenue Sale-a-bration set works with the the Lacy Brocade's like they were made for eachother!  Speaking of made for eachother, did you know that the medallion image fits in the smallest of the Floral Frames Framelits perfectly??  I did a little happy dance when I discovered that!!  I used a new addition to my stamp collection for the sentiment feature: the new That's the Ticket stamp set.  I am L-O-V-ing that set!  Finally, reason to use my Ticket Duo punch!  It has sat sadly neglected until now!  No longer, though!  It is going to get a workout with this fab stamp set!  I also went a little crazy with the embellies on this card...I used one of the new Designer Builder Brads and filled the centre with an In-colour Dahlia in Raspberry fits perfectly!  I also blinged up the stamped medallions with some of the Large Rhinestone basic gems...what's not to like about big bling?!?   Thanks for stopping by...have a happy Monday and a great week!
