My Valentine

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch to jumpstart your week.  This week we've got another CAS sketch from Carole Burrage, and I had so many ideas running through my head when I sat down to stamp.  I hope I find a little time this week to execute some of the other ones, because I loved how this quick little valentine came together.



I pulled out the new No Matter What set from Verve and this scrumptious seam binding from the Truly Madly Deeply Ribbon Collection (now back in stock!  Yay!).  It's a great match with Primose Petals, so I stamped the heart cluster and the sentiment on cream squares in Primrose, then sponged the edges with the same color ink.  The inner heart is stamped again and cut out, then popped up on top for some dimension and I added a bit of glossy glaze and a dusting of dazzling diamonds glitter.  The heart paper is from the Secret Crush Pink Paislee pad and I hand cut around the hearts for the border strip, then accented with some heart rhinestones.  I'm loving grey lately... especially pink and grey, so I matted with grey and wrapped my ribbon around it.  Used that heart embossing folder that I love again and added a few rounded corners to finish things off.  Easy peasy and under 20 minutes.  {I'm starting to get the hang of this quick crafting thing!}

Well, it's a 3 day weekend for Mark, so after spending the other 2 days finishing up some much needed baby proofing projects, today we're taking the boys to their grandparents and having a fun outing together.  Thanks so much for stopping by today... I hope you have a fantastic start to your week!
