That's a Valentine?!

Yes, this card is a Valentine.  I actually gave it to one of my dearest co-workers today and she loved it.  So, there! ;)  Okay, so it's not your traditional colors, it's not got a "Valentine" sentiment, but I will explain in a bit why it's a Valentine.  First, just take a peek...

Here's the card~

Details~





For these fabulous challenges~


(Purple & Green--totally doing my nursery 
in these colors if I ever have a child! )


I've used a NEW Clarity stamp (the fern), a blossom by Martha Stewart, a sentiment by Stampin' Up!, rhinestones by Prima, Gelatos by Faber Castel to color in my flower, black embossing powder by Stampendous!, and card stock by SU!.

So, why is this card a Valentine?  Well, because Valentine's Day is about love.  And love is a blessing.  And so are the people that bring it into our lives.  So that's how this is a Valentine! :)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my card!  I hope you've been inspired to create something today and please play along with these fun and fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Mynette,
What a card, it's so beautiful. Your coloring is simply splendid.
The layout of the fern is fabulous. For some reason I just want to gaze at this card.
