With Love for AHSC #89

This week I've started creating for Valentine's Day, and I wanted something that maybe had a bit of a masculine feel to it.  Something that isn't red, purple or pink.  I played around with some colors and really liked the combination. I hope you like my choices too.

Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my creation:

I decided to leave off the bow, as I didn't want to dress it up.  I used a 5 1/2" square card base, and layerd Kraft paper, and then patterned paper from from Pathfinding.  I cut my squares and tacked them down and created the background.  Then I stamped the flowers and fussy cut them out.  They are adhered using 3D Foam Tape.  The sentiment is also adhered with 3D Foam Tape.

I used Goldrush and Olive ink to create this card.  The flowers are stamped using both a detail and background stamp.  The detail is stamped regularly, and the background is stamped in second generation. The stamp set used is Someone Special (C1607) found in the Seasonal Expressions Catalog.

I hope you take the time to head on over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and check out all the fabulous creations from our Design Team.
