Vintage Valentine #2

Here's another take on a vintage valentine. This time I used Mojo Monday's sketch for this week and then built it using some of the other challenges listed below. I wanted to use this heart stamp because this valentine is for someone very special. I embossed it with Tim Holtz vintage photo embossing powder and then outlined the scalloped circle with vintage photo distress stickles. There is an oval under the scalloped oval in the polka dot paper, but it is difficult to see in this picture. The "lace" is actually a plastic lace runner that I cut and colored with sepia color dye ink and dried with the heat gun. I embossed the pink patterned paper with Cuttlebug swiss dots to add a little texture. The flowers are from my stash as are the bling. I love Stamping Vacation's Pick 3, so check out the details below...it is really a fun challenge!

Challenges entered for this card:

My Grafico and Crafty Ann's- use metal (2 brads)
Stamping Vacation - Pick 3 - 2 diecuts (oval is a punch and scalloped oval is a nestie); image with potential for growth (heart...love grows); 3 different patterned papers (pink is a pattern...not a solid)
