I love the bird image from the Take it to Heart stamp set. I used ink pads and blender pens to color the image. To give the image a bit more sparkle I used the tiniest bit of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to the flowers. I also heat embossed the textured background with touches of gold embossing powder. Since the challenge calls for pleats or ruffles, I ruffled a piece of Victoria Crochet ribbon on a hat pin. The top of the pin also features small punched flowers. This is my first Valentine card of the season. Let me know what you think and also what your favorite items are from the new mini.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
