Valentine's Day


My hubby is crazy about dogs so I tend to make a lot of cards for him with that theme.  For his Valentine card this year, I used a digi called "Puppy Love Wag Tail" from Bugaboo.  Colored  the image with PSE and cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die.  Embossed pink background layer with "Heart to Heart" Sizzix Texture Plate and my Sizzix Bigkick.  Punched 2 squares and cut in half to form the corners.  Added faux stitching with white gel pen.  Scalloped frame was cut out with my Silhouette Cameo using a file from the "Valentine Backgrounds" set from Miss Kate Cuttables.  Printed saying and cut out with Spellbinders die.  Punched two hearts and added some pearls.  Attached saying with pop dots.

Challenges
(I selected the row with these 3 Bingo blocks - No designer paper, free, scallop)

Pile It On Challenge 2 - Holidays or Celebrate
 2 Creative Chicks Challenge 10 - Anything goes
Silhouette Challenge 9 - Anything goes
(Pearls, Faux stitched corners, punched hearts, embossed background)

Hi Dee, Thanks for playing along with us at Jo's Friday Fun Day. Your doggie is just adorable as can be. (our Daughter is a dog nut so always on the lookout for cute dog images too). Love the way you did the layout with the circle on the set-on-point square. The added stitching put me in mind of a pretty quilt. Great design & coloring. TFS & Hugs
