Working on Valentines FwF

 
     How did it ever get to be Friday, again?  I was one of those crazy winter mornings around here.  We had snow, but just a few miles away, the roads were covered with icy rain.  This girl is staying put today.   I wanted to be sure and post my Friends with Flair card for this week.  I am having such fun using my Unity December KOM to create some Valentines.

     My card base is white, with a scrap layer of a putty colored card.  I used the heart arrow to create a background with black ink.  I took the large sentiment from the KOM, stamped it on a scrap of soft sand, and added touches of color with Copics.  I framed it in black, to make it pop. I pulled out my old, small heart punch from EK Success, punched it out of red, distressed edges with black and popped it up.  As accents I used May Arts mesh ribbon, American Crafts red twine, and a Queen & Co. gem.  I also broke out a great Christmas gift I received from a friend, which is a white Sharpie.  Wow, what was I missing?  This really made things jump off the page!

     Since I used all my little bits, I also want to enter this Valentine over at Pixie Snippets Playground, where I was a very proud winner last week!  Woo Hoo!

Mary Anne,
The mesh ribbon, twine and Heart punch are great for this and the white sharpie really adds to the overall look.

Very cute! I love that textured piece at the top - I've seen people using that and don't know what it is or where it's gotten, but it's cool! Love this quote, and the white dots are great!
