Last of the Valentines
I really didn't need another Valentine card, but it just seemed to work out that way when I saw Teresa Kline's great sketch for the Viva la Verve challenge on SCS's Verve forum. I found this heavy, glittery red CS at Mike's last week and wanted to die cut it using the Verve heart die. I kept it CAS, adding the sentiment on a banner die from Lil Inkers. This was the first time I inked up this little sentiment and I've had the set for over a year...qualifying this for Jessie Rone's Forgotten Stamp Friday challenge. This is also for the Free 4 All challenge on SCS to use a royalty theme using reds, purples or golds. I chose red and added pearl bling along with the sparkly heart to create the 'royal gem' feel to the card. Plus, it seems the queen is always holding roses in pictures, so this is a rose for the queen!
