Hearts & Flowers - {SSSC253/PTI Blog Hop}

Hi there friends!  Today I've got a Valentine card to share, which is for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch and for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop which is all about hearts.  
I'm late with my post for today, yesterday was one of my daughter's dance competitions out of town and even though I had my card made, I didn't have it photographed or my post typed up and was too tired to come home last night to get it done.  But better late then never right?
After looking at the Papertrey Ink inspiration photo, I found myself drawn toward the upper right hand corner picture of the paper chain of hearts with roses on them so that's what I tried to infuse in my card.  I started out with a raspberry fizz card base, a strip of regal rose and a matted piece of raspberry fizz designer paper.  Then I used the Shakers & Sprinkles heart dies and die cut the scalloped border heart out of vellum and the center heart out of a piece of music note paper and heat embossed the edges with gold.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set The Sweet Life for my roses and leaves and I popped up the music note heart with foam tape as well as the top rose which was stamped with raspberry fizz and red ink.  I also used the Keep it Simple: Valentine set and banner die for my sentiment and after stamping my leaves I did a little gold heat emboss on those as well.
Be sure to check out what each of the Sweet Sunday Stampers has created with this week's sketch:

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

Beautiful, beautiful card Lynn! And your comment about the dance competition brought back lots of memories as I too spent LOTS of weekends in dark auditoriums watching my daughter and her friends dance. Never thought I'd miss it, but I kinda do! Anyways, again, beautiful, beautiful card and just love how bright it is...will definitely bring a smile to someone's face! :0)

Beautiful Valentine's Day card.

I'm always envious of stampers who can do the layering of different papers and textures so well, and you did that on this Valentine. Makes me think of Dawn with the Raspberry Fizz as your dominant color...and that's a good thing, Lynn.
