Week 7: Love is in the Air

Happy Valentine's Day!

Well I thought I would only one Valentine's Day card this year but I was so inspired by all the love in the air that I decided I needed to do at least one more. I sent out my second card to some other special people in our lives. I think we should appreciate not just our partner but all the special people that we have in our lives. (Although in hind sight ALL the people that we love would be ALOT of cards. We don't want to get "Christmas card" style crazy)

Rather than using red, pink and white like my last card, I wanted to mix it up a bit and use some other shades. I love how the pink, blue and yellow came together. Picks up on the birdies in the background so well. I have used this stamp, by Old Island Stamp Company, before for weddings, engagements, etc. Very versatile and epically cute! The other thing I love is that Old Island Stamp Company is a local Canadian stamp company. You can see them at Circle Craft Fair every year. The paper I found at Michael's and had to pick it up when I saw how well it matched.

To be honest, I originally made this card off last weeks Mojo Monday sketch but I finished the card at 12:02 am and the linky had closed. It was a sad state of affairs but still a great sketch!
