FEBRUARY CCC

Tomorrow is the deadline for getting a card up for the February card chain challenge at Lily Pad Cards.  There are always several choices for the theme of the card we choose to make.  I chose the Valentine's Day theme:


I have a large stash of these flowers that I made from the Tim Holtz tattered floral dies.  Cut them out of copy paper, colored them with distress inks, accented all edges with Stickles and layered them with a pearl in the center.  Rather than a true red or true pink, the flower has a coral color to it.  I like the way it looks against the paper heart doily.  The dimensional flower was in the Simon Says Stamp January card kit.  I was very pleased with the assortment of items included in the kit and am looking forward to getting future kits from them.  Well worth the subscription price - check it out!  Sentiment is from Hero Arts XO clear set. 

Happy Valentine's Day!
