First Valentine's card ...


Posting my first Valentine's card of the year.  My inspiration for this cutie came from the Mod Squad Challenge Blog and MOJO Monday's sketch.

Stamps:  Love From Cocoa (Sweet 'n Sassy)
Paper:  White, Rose Red, Not Quite Navy (SU)
Ink:  Memento Black, Rose Red (SU)
Accessories:  Lacey and circle dies (Spellbinders), Copics, heart and polka dot embossing folder (CuttleBug), wooden heart, ribbon, gem 

The Mod Squad challenge was to use some kind of wood on your card...paper, emblishment, etc.   I went with a little wooden heart.  Here is the sketch from MOJO this week ...

I made my background by rubbing my ink pad directly on the embossing folder and then running it through my Cuttlebug.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day!

Your folder looks great with that technique and the little wooden heart is very sweet. Cocoa is always a cutie.
I guess we'll have a bit of a warm-up today before the next blast of cold. Enjoy it!! :-)
