Purple Valentine

Hello my scrappy friends!  Here in southern NJ we are experiencing some lovely warmer then usual weather!  Jeans and a sweatshirt, hearing birds all around, seeing the sun shine is just a perfect day for me!  Here is a quick post so I can enjoy the outdoors!

This card I made for my daughter for St. Valentine's Day.  I wanted more of a spring colored card but still had this black and red die cut heart.  I have to tell you that the card looks much better in person!  The green strip  and yellow/red flowers strip help bring out the colors in the purplely flowered patterned paper.  Because of the black heart, I thought some black ink edging on all papers was needed.  Now that I look at this  card, I really should have added some glitter stickles for a bit of shine!  Next time!!

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:

The Heart DesiresThe Hearts Desires Blog - Mid-Challenge 9 - inspiration challenge - I was inspired by the flowers and reds and yellows.

Hand Stamped Sentiments stamping challenge blog and paper craft challenge blog Hand Stamped Sentiments - #257 - I was inspired by the photos purple flowers.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some comments!!  Have a wonderful week!
