SFYTT #9 & RS#100

Well, it's the first of the month, which means that
there is a new Sketch for You to Try up on the Reverse Confetti blog today! 

And here's the card I made with the sketch:

I fell in love with this sheet of Crate Paper patterned paper and thought it would be lovely
to use to make a Valentine's Day card for one of my boys....

I added a tag that I cut using the largest Reverse Confetti Tag Me die, which I stamped
& heat embossed in aqua using a sentiment from  Lots to Say (I love this set -- such gorgeous fonts!)
& from Crushin'.
I die cut the hearts from some of the leftover patterned paper
using the heart dies from Love Note.
Then I added some twine and a button to finish it off.

Also,  Reverse Confetti is sponsoring the Retro Sketches #100
and some of the RC DT are playing along.

I decided to use my Peacock Pretties stamp set & Love Note die.

I started by stamping my feathers on the base and then stamped them on the Love Note die cut.
I stamped my sentiment from Lots to Say.
I added some Pretty Pink Posh Light Pink Twine & a Pretty Pink Posh button.
Then, I adhered this to my card using dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for looking!
