Challenge Winning cards

Sending My Love

Yesterday's card got me in the mindset to make some more Valentine cards and looking through blogland for inspiration, I found this fab sketch at Freshly Made Sketches...

 Now for the colour scheme - I came across a challenge blog I haven't seen before at Pals Paper Arts that has a gorgeous colour challenge...

Finally, while looking through my choices of card blanks I decided to open a pack of 5x7 blanks that I have had for absolute years! The oblong shape makes this card ideal for today's challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - don't be square.

The cute image is from the Lovebirds set available at the Digistamp Boutique. The photo is rubbish due to the indoor night time conditions but in 'real life' the ribbon and the hearts are the same shade and a bit lighter. The patterned paper is actually gift wrap and the ribbon was part of the wrapping on my new Christmas onesie - I do love a bit of recycling!

First full week back at work tomorrow - I do love the holidays so I can craft through the day.

Thanks for looking..
