A ton of Love

It’s kind of a bittersweet time for me.  I was so excited to play along with Card Positoning Systems 5 year anniversary celebration and their 15 card sketches.  I used the final sketch for this card and I need to double check but I think I’ve completed them all.  There were a couple that were more challenging than the others but I really liked all of the challenges – they were just my style.  Not too simple and not to elaborate.

I’m using another Lili of the Valley stamp.  This is the last Valentine card I plan to make this year.

I drew my color inspiration from My Time Made Easy’s challenge this week – just perfect for Valentines day.  I’m not sure why my gray cardstock is looking more like taupe but it really is gray!

I embossed the  pink panel with Cuttlebug’s Swiss Dots and the rose panel with Craft Concept’s Budding Vine.

I printed the sentiment on aqua cardstock, trimmed and matted it.  An easy way to get the notch is to center the end of paper in a square punch at an angle – no need to buy a die for this!

If  you have time, take a look at some of my other cards I made for the CPS challenge.  I had a blast making all of these cards and I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my interpretation of the sketches.  Take care!  Dee

    Very pretty card! Love your coloring and shading. Was that done with Copics? It almost has a watercolor-y effect. Nicely done!
