a lavender valentine. . . .

is what my card for the new Muse challenge blog turned out to be.  Not intentionally - somehow it just happened. 



I knew that I wanted to use the layout of the card  that Laurie Willison provided for our  muse and turn it around to a landscape design.  And, I wanted to use this beautiful Magenta heart, which is one of my oldest stamps.  I adore this wood mounted stamp!  I also used one of my newest stamps - the Hero Arts dots background.  The sentiment is  from Hero Arts, too.  A punched heart, some bling and purple Stickles were added for a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for visiting.

This lilac color is so unique and perfect! And, because I've seen you use this background stamp so beautifully, I finally bought it (even tho I've said no more wood!). This is just too dear, Joy!
