Valentine Wishes

Happy Tuesday!  Today I have a quick little card I made using Amber's January Week 1 Viva la Verve! sketch.  I love long cards, and thought the different panels on the sketch would be the perfect chance to break out the new Je t'adore papers from Making Memories.

The card itself is actually pretty simple and didn't take long at all.  I just cut the patterned paper, inked with some Vintage Photo ink, then stamped the Valentine Wishes sentiment from Love Notes directly on a Pink Paislee Artisan Element, then accented with some cranberry pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.  That seemed a bit too easy, so I made a little paper rosette out of a strip of the remaining polka dot print, then accented with a glitter heart and a maya road trinket pin.  I finished off with a little Stardust Stickles on the edge of the rosette and was done!

Don't forget, you have until Thursday night {1/27} to get your entries in for our January Viva la Verve! challenge.  One random participant will win Verve's next release!!!  There are only four sketches this month and Verve stamps aren't required, so get your stamp on!  :)
