Create with Connie and Mary and Paper Players #29 Challenges

I used the great sketch from Create with Connie and Mary and the Valentine theme from The Paper Players to inspire me to create this card. There is no stamping on this card, but I still love the way it turned out. I used a new heart stencil from Dreamweaver and sponged burgandy ink on some new DP from Memory Box for the focal point and then layered that on the lacey squares nestie. The background DP is also from Memory Box. Add some ribbon and pearls and the card is done.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Karen, I had forgotten what a gorgeous color burgundy is for Valentine's - such a wonderful change from the usual colors. Gorgeous card!
So glad you joined the Paper Players again this week for our Valentine theme challenge.
