A Masculine Valentine 76

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, January 6, 2011 @ 12:47 AM | ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great week :) I have to keep this short and sweet - 4:30 AM comes really quick! I had some "me" time tonight so I made this "masculine" Valentine's Day card for my honey :)
I pulled out a piece of Making Memories Paper Reverie Metallique Paper and combined it with a gorgeous fabric flower from my stash and a sweet sentiment from Flourishes Fanciful Flourishes. This card qualifies for two challenges: Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, FTTC99 where Barb is challenging us all to create using a flower and for color inspiration, I referred to the beautiful graphic for  Play Date Cafe Challenge, PDDC99:
Up close, you can see the sweet WITH Love sentiment showcased inside the ornate metallic frame:
The beautiful Spring Moss wrinkle ribbon was courtesy of Kimberly at My Craft Spot. Thanks for looking! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes Fanciful Flourishes
Patterned Paper: Making Memories, October Afternoon
