Color Challenge Valentine

Good morning....I got my Color Challenge card finished in time to watch the Inauguration. Boy, am I glad I'm home watching it on TV...have you seen the huge croud in DC today? OMG....
This is such a historic day and I am looking forward to a new day in America!!!

I just love old fashioned Valentines....this beautiful Rubbernecker Stamp Oasis image called Dove Heart remindes me of the elegant Victorian era. The image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with copics. The edges were distressed, sponged with Ranger Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, and the Itty Bitty Background stamp was used around the edges with the Frayed Burlap. The Regal Rose background layer was run through the cuttlebug and then distressed on the edges. The Frayed Burlap was also used on the Regal Rose layer and on the Rubbernecker sentiment to add a little age.

The background dp is by Fancy Pants called Splendid and the gold heart button is from my button box. Ribbon, lace, and off white colored pearls from Stamper's Dream finish it off.

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Perfectly vintage GF, it is totally Victorian in style to my eyes and reminds me of some wonderful old Victorian postcards that a relative of mine treasured, all hearts and flowers and old lace. A very, very beautiful card. Hugs, Chris
