Valentine's Day Card 02

Hi everyone!  I can't believe I haven't been on here in such a long time.  Unfortunately I have been busy moving from one city to another and it has taken me a lot longer to fix up my place than I expected and on top of that I am now sick! /=

Anyways, I found a little time and decided to de-stress and create a card (:

Here it is:




I made this card for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge


I thought using the Love Notes stamp set with it's coordinating die, Heart Note Fri-Die would be perfect for this challenge.


To create this card I used the Tim Holtz water color paper and did some watercoloring with distress inks.
I then cut a small portion of that (I can use the rest for another card) and adhered it to my Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I then died cut the Heart Note Fri-Die out of black cardstock and stamped the sentiment using Versafine Ink in Onyx Black.

I thought I was done with the card but I felt something was missing so I added the stitched line with a black unibal gel pen on either side of the watercolored panel.


I entered this card in the


Before I go I would like to let you all know that CAS-ual Fridays is having a Fri-Die deal!! 20% off all dies and you don't need a code.  How awesome is that?



Have a great day!
