Elegant Valentine

Here's an elegant Valentine that makes me think of my mom. :o) The colors are Cherry Cobbler Coredinations (and sanded a bit for the antique look), Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and a touch of Crumb Cake.

Polkadot Valentine

Not exactly typical Valentine colors, but a fun card none-the-less! This paper is from the Sale-a-Bration brochure, and so is the texture folder! Gotta love free stuff!

The sentiment is from Yippee Skippee!

Pink & Gray Valentine

Here's another one that I really like - the softness of the pink and gray is perfect for a Valentine!

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, but is easily interchangeable for an anniversary or birthday.

Hopefully, you've been thinking about Valentines?! I have - here is one of several that I will show you over the next few days.

This one uses Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, and some Red Glitter paper. This is one of my favorite color combinations because it is always so striking! The stamp is from Perfect Pennants in the new Occasions catalog. Perfect for a Valentine!
