Pals Paper Arts 79 & JUGS70


After a good night’s sleep my eyes are much better, and I thank all of those who commented yesterday!  I did have a little time to stamp, so I created a valentine card using the Pals Paper Arts color challenge 79:


I used the heart from the Always set, along with a few other images and punches, to make a cluster of hearts and flowers for my card:


The Very Vanilla background was embossed with the Elegant Lines EF and cut into three panels…it was then mounted on a piece of Rich Razzleberry  Patterns DP.   I left off the sentiment as I didn’t want to hide any of that lovely embossing!

Here’s a closeup:


I added some pearls and VV seam binding for a simple finish!  Edited to add:  this also qualifies for the JUGS Sketch Challenge 70, shown here, which I turned topsy-turvey:
