With St. Valentine's Day falling on Sunday, the 14th, I decided to use this pink challenge to make just one more Valentine. On a panel of vanilla cardstock, I used a "just-stitching" die set of hearts to create the random design. Because I usually make a terrible mess when I splatter ink, I decided to try a stencil, using both pink and gray ink. I added a gold-bordered ribbon and adhered the die-cut panel to a rectangle of gray with only a bit showing. This was added to the pink card base. The sentiment was die-cut from gold paper and two shadows were die-cut - one pink, one gray, then stacked and adhered to the card front. The inside was lined with a die-cut scalloped vanilla panel embossed with the just stitching heart dies. A die-cut "you" in gray was added along with a punched gold metallic heart in gold metallic.
