I seem to be in a trend of making my Valentine cards "busy". Lots of different elements going on. I started out with the plan of making a "cleaner" looking card....I don't know what happened along the way, but this is what I ended up with! So much for that clean look! I even carried it over to the inside of the card. I am always inspired on Claudia's cards look like pieces of art on the inside and the outside. I did discover that by doing the inside of a card, it is a great way to use that paper that comes in a pack that you aren't sure what to do with or you don't like so much. It coordinates well with the outside and you don't feel like you aren't getting your money's worth from the pack of paper. Take the paper on the inside of this card...it's an interesting pattern. it combines all the patterns from the Bittersweet pack. However, It just isn't something I saw myself using on the outside of a card. But for the inside it seemed GREAT and coordinate perfectly with the front of the card. So what do you think?
I have had those flowers forever! A couple of years ago I decided to go to the silk flower section of AC Moore and buy a few different flower "picks". I even picked all the flowers off and put them in baggies so they wouldn't get dusty. Well at least I smart enought to do that, because this is the first time I used them! The colors finally worked out!! LOL!
I just got myself that flourish punch. I have been looking for them, but finally just found one at Gina K's. Yay!! And I used it! and used it....and used it...and used it! Did I get a little flourish crazy?! Yikes!

I had to take 2 pics for the Copics. I colored the Tilda, took the pic and put the makers away. They clutter up my area other wise. Then I remebered that I had to take the pic for the Cupcake. So I marked them on the pics.

OK. It's 3:30 am and I have to be up in just over 3 hours to get the kids ready for school. I better try and get some sleep. (easier said than done) YAWN!


Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

What a beautiful card-not too busy at all! Love the flowers, flourishes and your perfect coloring! I agree with you about the inside-after seeing Claudia's cards it's hard not to do the inside AND your ideas about using up paper are right on! TFS! Cheryl
