One More Valentine!!


I just had to make one more Valentine....I love these old fashioned diecuts from K&Co...they make the best shabby chic cards!!! The background was stamped with Layer's of Color's Brick background stamp and the little birds are from LOC's Birdday Party set. They were colored with Copics and attached with dimensionals. Sewing and distressing was done for the shabbylicious look and the wrinkled seambinding, button and twine finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Layers of Color Brick Wall and LOC's Birdday Party
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Kraft, scrap of patterned paper (sorry, I don't have a name)
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: K&Co. Diecuts, Sewing Machine, Wrinkles Seam Binding, Bitton, Twine
This is also for Splitcoast's Ways to use it Challenge to use hearts and A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge to mak a Valentine.
This is my last card as the January Guest Designer for Layer's of Color....I had such a wonderful month playing with their FABULOUS stamps!!! Thanks Laura, Linda, and the DT for making my GDT month absolutely fantastic!!!!

Siiggghhhh ... Girl this is just gorgeous! LOVE it! Oh I WANT those die cuts so bad! I think a local scrapbook store is getting them in. I need to call today and check. These are a must have! Your collage of elements is wonderful. and I love how you used the brick wall and made the birds red! Beautifully done!
