A Valentine's Challenge

This card was for a challenge awhile ago on the demo side of SCS, and the challenge was to make a Valentine's card without using the traditional images of Valentine's Day. So I went real easy on myself and didn't use any images at all! The letters were stamped in various colors and embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder for some sparkle. The sentiment is actually the "be merry" from Warm Words, and I used a marker and my stamp-a-ma-jig to eliminate some of the letters. Thanks for stopping by!

stamps - Warm Words, Short Order Alphabet
paper - vanilla, pomegranate, rose red, regal rose, choc chip
ink - versamark, pomegranate, rose red, choc chip marker
acc - vanilla grosgrain; II ep; scallop, 1-3/8", 1-1/4", 1" punches

I love this! And the colors are so yummy! Your punch is perfect, going into my sketch book. Now if I can ever remember to buy the 1 3/8 in punch - that's another story!!!
