Valentine Card





Yes I know it's not until next year but Nikki at Dewdrop Craftz has challenged us to make a Valentine card - no red & no flowers - so here is mine :-) all in golds & browns



I backed the card in patterned vellum in white - Ornate floral by Papermania & used double sided 12x12 foil paper Gold border for the rest. The swirl stamp is from the Basic Grey Birds of a feather set & words from the Dovecraft clear stamps & I used punches & inks & of course sticky fixers!

I enjoyed doing this so a big thank you to Nikki for the challenge :-)
