Love You

     Can you believe that this is the last day of January and Valentine's day is only two weeks away?  Weren't we tossing out the torn Christmas wrap just last night?  It's also a Friday which means that today's card is my DT card for the latest weekly challenge at QKR Stampede.

     Our challenge theme is always Anything Goes but I chose to make a Valentine card.  This is my second Valentine this year but the image I chose (with it's own sentiment as part of the image) is a favorite of mine.  It's called "Love You" and I just adore the little rag doll.  It's the 'ragged" part of her that inspired me to do lots of distressing on this card.

     I do love the typical "warm" colors of Valentine's Day because they are really our first chance to add warm colors to our otherwise cold winter palette.  The red, pink, and deep burgundy are such a delight.  :-D

Colored with ProMarkers and chalk ink pad
Pink and burgundy color combo
Image and mat cut with Spellbinders dies, 2 corners curled
Edges distressed with kraft knife
2 corners shaped with Fiskars punch
Kitty ribbon from Crafty Ribbons
Lace bow made with bow maker

Beautifully colored rag doll, Miss Connie, and lovely monochromatic design. The distressed "curled" edges are a fabulous pairing with the old fashioned dolly, and the inking around the edges really does marvelously highlight your featured images! Wishing you a fantastic week-end! Smiles, de

Anne, Please note the first sentence in the paragraph immediately above the photo of my card - " do love the typical "warm" colors of Valentine's Day because they are really our first chance to add warm colors to our otherwise cold winter palette."
