Oh Happy Day Valentine

Hi Stampers

Todays card is all about using scraps (from Christmas, as it turns out) to make our happy little Valentine cards.  I shamelessly cased this card from a wonderful sample by Heidi Boos.  Thanks, fellow stamper, for the inspiration.  It so happened I had all the ingredients ready in my scrap box - love that. 

I started out with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card using crumb cake.  Using my (now retired) large background stamp 'dots' with Versamark clear, the rest was just simple placement of my scraps.  The glittered scallop border is not SU but the polka dots are SU's designer series paper and the hearts are cut out using the 'Hearts a Flutter' framelets in real red and pretty in pink.  I used a sentiment from 'Bloomin' Marvelous' - available FREE during sale-a-bration.  A little 'gem' from the Basic Jewels pack adds just a little bling.  This was a fun card to make - practical too - and I hope you enjoyed it.

I have another Valentine to share with you tomorrow so check back!

Have a super day...
