SIP85 Love You

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  The Stamp Ink Paper team has a lovely, "heart-felt" challenge for you today:

No automatic alt text available.
I wanted to do something a little different, and I remembered I had this very cool gold-embossed paper in my MME My Story pad.  My card came together so easily, it was amazing:

There's no stamping on this, except for the inside!  I used a couple of heart dies to cut out the Very Vanilla heart and a Simon Says Stamp die for the gold foil sentiment.  A wee piece of vellum under the heart helps the sentiment not get lost with all the other goldiness going on!!!  Here's a different can see how the gold arrows shimmer!

And here's a closeup of the focal simple but I love it!

I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp "Young at Heart" challenge, as it uses a SSS die!

So be sure to get busy and share your heart/love creations with doesn't necessarily have to be a Valentine's about an anniversary card?  Use your imagination and be sure to check out what the DT did as well!

Speaking of Valentines, Cassidy has almost 30 to prepare for her classmates and teachers, so she went the store-bought route and has gotten a head-start on them!

Good practice, writing all those names!  Enjoy your day!
