LOVE Letters

 TGIF!!  Those are definitely love letters in my book!   But, of course, the title of this post is referring to my Valentine's Day card!

These wonderful sketch letters are from a new set I just got from Simon Says called All About Love and the die cut heart is also from Simon Says (my favorite heart die!)  I tried a new technique for the background: Smooshing - I think I smooshed a little too much because the three colors I used look like, well, orange/red - but it's a fun technique and I'll definitely be trying it again!

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration!

(I really did use these colors...told you I over smooshed!)

(This is a NEW challenge blog for me!)

  2. This is an unexpected colour for a Valentine's card and I like that - the heart falling out of the frame is fabulous. Great card.
