Retrosketches Challenge

I know Valentine's Day is over and done, but I'm still in love with hearts on cards, so had to go with at least one more this month! I tweaked the latest Retrosketches Challenge layout by tilting the square panel a wee bit.  I also let the patterned paper do the work and simply added a clear embossed sentiment - stamped with Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink - on the postcard design.  I thought this Verve flower imitated the doily design and layered it over the heart and leafy flourish.  

STAMPS: Bloom and Grow (flower), Love Notes (sentiment), Wings of Love (heart) - all by Verve.
PAPER: Lost and Found 3 "Ruby" pad by MME, Vintage Cream, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive.
INK: Blushing Bride, Going Gray, Versafine Onyx Black.
ACCESSORIES: Leafy Flourish Die-Namics by MFT, Wavy Hearts and Floral Circles dies by Verve, Rhinestones by SU, Brad.

Have a great weekend!  Looks like the 20" snow we got Wednesday and Thursday wasn't enough!  Another front is to bring 1-2" more today! :-(  Trying to be patient for the arrival of next week where temperatures will rise and be near 60 by the end of the week!  Now, that's more like it!

this is so pretty Wanda-and I loved how you tweaked the sketch-tilted panels always look great-that's a lot of snow-we had some but not that much-today was another 3"-and we are supposed to go to 50° the end of the week as well-it will feel like summertime
