Love-SFYTT

So I was doing a little blog hopping for the first time in forever!  It was nice to have time to actually go through my reader!  So I found this blog along the way and a really super cute sketch!  You can go check out Jen's blog HERE!  And here is her sketch for January....


I had a customer call and request a special Valentines card. She wanted it mostly black, kind of "old world antiquey"...I am thinking to myselt...Can I pull that off? LOL!...so I found Jen's sketch, turned it on it's side and this is what I came up with! Not your typical cupid and heart Valentines Day card!

I used that Sheet Music IP again!  Love that thing!  I again smeared it with black ink and ran it through with Kraft cardstock!  To get the antiqued look I used Tim Holtz Fired Brick and Frayed Burlap!  Then I layered that with an embossed piece of black!  I thought the addition of the rose trim was fun!  I do love that stuff!

You will have to let me know what you think!  Hope you are having a great Tuesday so far!

Have a great day!
