Papertrey Ink Valentine or Anniversary card.

Blog-hop-logo

Hello everyone and I hope you are enjoying your weekend. If you are here for today's  Christmas Card Challenge, please scroll down to the next post along.

The 25th of the month always brings another Blog Hop from Papertrey Ink and this time 

January-2015-PTI-Blog-Hop

the theme is hearts.

I came up with a a card for my DH for Valentines day but it could just as easily fit the bill for an anniversary card.




I cut the focal panel out of white card and then fussy cut the mat for it in tropical teal card. I love mixing and matching sentiments from different sets so that they say just what I want and that's what I did here. I started off by stamping the scrolls from Boutique Borders: Birthday in Hawaiian Shores ink and then stamped the Love image from Heart 2 Heart 2. The words underneath came from With All My Heart and Boutique Borders: Love, which were stamped in tropical teal ink, and I then finished with another scroll. I used the Falling Hearts stencil from Simon Says Stamps, and some pure poppy ink to add the tiny hearts over the background along with some larger die cut hearts to add some texture.

All of this was placed on a background of paper from the  Sparkle and Shine Paper collection, and I finished it off with some baker's twine and another little heart.

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with but before I go, I'd like to enter this into
