Valentine Heart

Happy Friday!
I hope y'all have had a great week. It's been a rough week here in the south. We had over 8" of snow late Sunday into Monday. Then with freezing temps all week, and ice on top of and underneath the snow, we were frozen in for four days! It's pretty bad when you don't have any mail for all that time and the biggest mall in Georgia was shut down until Thursday afternoon.

Since I've had enough winter to last me a while, I thought a Valentine might be a nice change. I love these new DRS Designs images! The swirls are fabulous and the woven plaid is destined to be a favorite. I stamped the swirl and woven plaid in the same rouge chalk ink. For the heart and greeting, I inked the images first with VersaMark then tapped them with the melon ink before embossing them with the rose sparkle powder. After die cutting them, I used the pixie dust ink to lightly sponge the edges while the dies were still in place.
A pale pink marker was used to trace the heart image and underline the greeting. I used a ribbon punch on the plaid, threaded the ribbon through and tied it. All the layers have the dk rose backing and the finished card measures 4.25 x 5.5.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
