Valentine for my Mom

Without Valentine's Day, February would be... well, January. ~Jim Gaffigan

Hey everyone ...
As I noted earlier, we don't celebrate Valentines in my home but I do make them for the Mom's and a couple of elderly Aunts. So here I have the Valentine card I made for my Mother

I had her card all planned out but found myself moving in another direction. But that's okay .. I like how this one turned out.

After I die cut the main background I used the die as a stencil and sponged color onto the flowers and leaves. I cut the heart out of a brown cardstock because it made me think of a grapevine wreath. Once my flower was dry I glued to the heart.



Supplies
Card stock from Stampin Up! & Bazzill
Ink from Stampin Up!
Die: Scribbles & Splats from Sizzix
Die: Flower Bramble from ProvoCraft
Flower Punches from Martha Steward & Marvy

Thanks for stopping by!
(Hugs) Cara
