Still plenty of time to join us if you haven't already, and you can always share up to 3 creations.

For my card share today I'm showing you the card I gave to my husband on Valentines Day. It's been a long time since I've used these cute frogs and I thought they were perfect for the occasion.


The stamp is wood mounted - Captivated by Penny Black available HERE and HERE - both through ebay, as it's an older stamp and I don't think any longer in production. 

I stamped it using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink, sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder and heat embossed on Bristol Vellum Paper. I used my Copic markers again to color this image. 


The background stamping was done with the heart stamp from the Penny Black set So Very Much, stamped in Antique Linen ink. The small heart is from the Penny Black Heart Bow Die and the pattern paper is from my stash. The sentiment "Be Mine" was a dollar spot find at Michaels many years ago. I added natural jute twine to finish off the card.
