PTI Valentine Swap Card


Here is the card I made for my Valentine swap partner (KimH). The layout design came from this card by Debbie Olson. I played around with a couple color combos but in the end I liked the sweet blush with scarlet jewel.

Supplies:
Stamps- Simple Valentine & Background Basics:Hearts (PTI)
Paper- White, Sweet Blush, Scarlet Jewel (PTI)
Ink- Fresh snow, Sweet Blush, Scarlet Jewel (PTI)
Misc- scallop emboss punch (EK success), scarlet jewel bitty dot ribbon

Now to go check all of the blogs I have been neglecting for the last few days. On Sunday my husband went snowshoeing in the Sierra Nevada and took a 20 ft tumble off a cliff. Thankfully, he is only badly banged up with no serious injury or broken bones but I have been playing nursemaid to him, keeping him medicated and trying to keep him still. He is going stir crazy in the house and I am running out of creative ways to keep him immobile.
