Make it Versatile!!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I am typing this up the nite before so my kiddo's might be home with me today due to the snow that was predicted----ack! I am SO ready for spring & flowers and warm weather, it's killin' me, lol! I guess it doesn't help that I'm still a bit under the weather, behind on all my chores & projects too :o) I have my son's 11th birthday, my Mom's birthday & Valentine's Day all looming in the next 10 days & have yet to get anything done for them, arghhhhh. Busy, busy....

Today's card was made for this week's Try It Out Tuesday Challenge #4 for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. This week's challenge is to take a stamp that isn't necessarily made/used for Valentine's Day & use it! I love to challenge myself with the stamps I have on hand and use them in different ways, so this is always fun---makes what you have more versatile of course!

I chose Karen Lockhart's "Flowers in Chintz" stamp to use for my card & paired it up with this beautiful print from Basic Grey's "Bittersweet" dp. The sentiment & the heart image that I stamped over top of it are from SUINK's "Will You Be My Valentine" set. This sketch is this week's Mojo Monday #72--great for this image me thinks! I used a Blue Moon heart charm and white pearls for embellies.

Just a quick close-up that shows the Diamond Glaze I used on top of the vase & Stickles on some of the flower images. So I challenge you to pick out a stamp and make it work for a Valentine's Day card & upload it to SCS using the keyword "TIOT4". Make sure and stop by the store blog, Follow Your Heart to see the rest of the DT's lovely creations!

Until tomorrow....
