Creative Sketches Week 17 A Valentine Card

Of course I am chasing myself this week and got my challenge card done in the nick of time, just barely. The 4th week of the month is always a holiday card and that may become a stretch for me or it may not since I am designing holiday cards for the troops all the time. I quickly looked through my newest stamp sets (some of them haven't seen ink yet, gasp!) and decided on my Valentine Defined set. Then I remembered that I had the matching Love Impressions rub-ons and went "hmmmm, what can I create with those?" I don't use rub-ons very often, so I challenged myself and this is what I came up with. Not too shabby. I used Real Red, Pretty in Pink and a hint of Wild Wasabi on this card. The patterned paper is from our Patterns Designer Series Paper Stacks and I added some Real Red 5/8 ribbon for a finishing touch. Back to the grindstone. I have an event with 20-25 Junior and Senior High School students this weekend making more cards for From Our Hearts. Got to keep cranking out kits.
