Blossoms Abound Valentine

Yep, I am back with a Valentine made with an older stamp set. This card is using Blossoms Abound by Stampin Up! I used a couple of the pastel shades of card stock from Gina K. Designs. My striped paper is from my scrap bin. I used Versamagic chalk inks to do my 2 step stamping and then cut it out offset with a Scalloped heart Nestabilities die. I sponged with soft blue before removing the heart from the die. I added some Dew Drops, butterfly punch outs, and deep purple ribbon as my accents. Just a simple Valentine. I really enjoyed using this set!

Expecting a very frigid day here today. My car is still in a shroud of ice and snow, so I guess no work for me again today, darn. Spent the evening rolled in a blanket, on the couch, watching Eat Pray Love w/ Julia Roberts. Hubby actually made it through the movie! Glad I recorded the premier of Off The Map, cause I fell asleep. I may be back! Hope all is well in your little part of the world!

I've always regretted not buying Blossoms Abound when it was available, and every time I see it used, I have MORE regrets! You really created a beauty here! It has all the elements for the challenge at JoansGardens - I hope you entered it there!?
