I {heart} U

Happy Sunday!  It's time for a new colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps.  This one is just perfect for Valentine's Day...check it out:

I planned my design using this week's sketch challenge over at  PPA:


And here is my take on it:

Valentine's card featuring the Perpetual Birthday Calendar and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets.
I had some grungy fun with this one!  I stated with a piece of Whisper White card stock which I stamped several times with the heart confetti image from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set using Real Red ink.  Then I added some spatters using the Gorgeous Grunge set and gold metallic ink.  I embossed the whole thing using the Adorning Accents TIEF (retired).  I added a 1/2" strip of Real Red card stock that I punched with the Hearts Border Punch, as well as some gold baker's twine.  The letters are made using Simply Pressed Clay and the new Alphanumeric happy to see a new mold for this product line!  I coloured the heart using my Real Red Stampin' Write marker and added some hints of gold to the letters using a sponge dauber and gold metallic ink.  I adhered then to a little banner cut from a piece of Burlap trim.

I added some gold sequin trim and a gold baker's twine bow to the bottom of the banner and scattered a few random sequins around.

Inside view with sentiments from Something to Say.
On the inside I repeated the stamped images from the front as a border along the outer edge.  The sentiment is from the Something to Say set and is stamped in Real Red ink.  I added a little heart, also from the Something to Say set, stamped in gold metallic ink.

Why not give this challenge a try...we, at Sunday Stamps,  would love to see your work!
