Lexi's Creations challenge #58 theme - 'Love (Valentine)' Feb.6th thru Feb18th,2012
Sponsor Fairy Dust Crafts
Head on over to Lexi's Creations for the challenge details AND take a peek at all the lovely work from the multi talented Design Team while there!
I decided to use Valentine Scruffles from Fairy Dust Crafts for this fortnights challenge. He is such a little sweetie and Fairy Dust has quite a few digital stamps featuring him, several of which are 'valentine' related; was hard to pick which one to use:O) He can be found here!
I used a floral background stamp from Stampin Up which I stamped on pink cardstock and heat embossed for a soft romantic look. The heart box Scruffles is holding is covered with crystal effects, which unfortunately, does not reflect in the photo but looks quite nice IRL. I added two little hearts to the bottom flourish. The flower is DIY, a reject from a previous card and found in my stash!
