Postcard Valentine

Happy Friday!  It's time for another Viva la Verve! challenge and this week's sketch was designed by Teresa Kline.  As soon as I saw the little envelope shape on the sketch, I remembered a cute little postcard die that I picked up on clearance at the craft store a few months ago.  I couldn't wait to dig it out and give it a go!

I wanted a vintage valentine look to go along with the miniature postcard die, so I picked out this kraft-based Love paper from American Crafts.  I stamped a heart and an XOXO from the Love Notes set on my postcard to dress it up.  Next up, I made a little rosette with the designer paper, then stamped the heart and sentiment from Love Notes and cut out with the Jotted Heart Die (both on sale right now!) and layered together.  Keeping with the miniature theme, I embellished with a mini library clip, mini staples and some mini rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

That's all for me.  I hope you get a chance to play along with Viva la Verve this week.  And just a little reminder that it's a contest week over at Mojo Monday - so be sure to get your entries in by Sunday night.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
