An Eclectic Valentine

I usually only make a Valentine's Day card for my husband, but I decided to join a Valentine's Day card exchange with some ladies in a group I'm in and was so excited with the way this turned out.

I don't have any "current" Valentine's sets, so I had to be a little creative.  I used the heart from Wood Words and embossed them in white on some Shimmery White Cardstock.  I then took the Brilliant Red Brusho  and sprinkled a little on the paper.  Using a Stampin' Spritzer and an Aqua Painter to move the color around.

The custom sentiment is made with the Lift Me Up stamp set and the "love" from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  

Using some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, I cut the background piece and heart using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits
Do you know how amazing the Stampin' Blends are?? I used the light markers of Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry for the heart - the skinny tip worked best!

But my favorite part - the ribbon!!  This ribbon was colored using the same Blends markers and the Smoky Slate 1/2" Gingham Ribbon.  My mother showed me some ribbon she colored using the blends and I had to try it!

A few Glitter Enamel Dots and the card is complete! :)

I hope this inspires you to make a lovely card for a friend and send it this weekend!
