Happy Valentines Day Challenges

Valentines Day is the theme of the challenges at Crafting When We Can, Dream Valley Challenges and The Squirrel and the Fox. I am posting my last Valentine which I sent to a dear friend who is on the road with her hubby in their motorhome. I sent it a while ago so hope it catches up with her soon.

I started with a lovely heart diecut from Memory Box which I attached to a heart nestie shape and added some gems. I cut out a mask with my large heart border from Martha Stewart and sponged the white hearts on to kraft paper. The friends stamp is from Stampin' up and the whole card was layered onto red cardstock to complete the card.

Happy Valentines to everyone!

Stamping smiles, Karen
