Be Mine, Valentine...CR84FN Challenge 13

Hey Everyone!!

How was your weekend? We are back in the midst of winter again :( It started snowing Friay night and hasn't quit yet! Temperatures have plummeted 25 degrees and the roads are icy nightmares! Compare this with my head cold that has developed and you can bet I stayed in all weekend long! There are some definite advantages to my staying in..laundry is caught up, house is clean and I got quite crafty with all my spare time!

Speaking of craftyness...on to this week's CR84FN Challege (#13) and my second time participating!! This week's colors are Brown, Red and Teal...yummy! And with Valentine's Day being 15 days away..I could hardly resist making a valentine for someone sweet on my list..


Above is this week's challenge, and below is my take on these beautiful colors!!



What do you think? I used PTI's Kraft CS for my base as well as their Hawaiian Shores and Dark Chocolate! The polka dot paper is from Michaels (love it!) And the fun border is also from PTI, which I ran through with my Cuttlebug


I used Betsy Veldman's idea of faux embossing on the Dark Chocolate with PTI heart dies and the sentiment is from PTI's 2010 Love Tags stamp set


And of course I couldn't forget my envelope!! Since this card is for a very special valentine of mine (my little niece) I decorated it with a heart doily from Michaels, some red/white twine and a postage stamp, also from PTI's 2010 Love Tags stamp set!


Thank you so much for checking out my little creation! Take care, have a great week and Happy Crafting everyone!
