The Lovely Bombshell strikes again! I adore her. I think ADORE is an understatement here. But she pairs up so nicely for a Valentines Day theme. I love her.
I colored her with Prismacolor and SU Poppy Parade. The base is scrapbook paper that I got out of the Beverly's Fabric's .10 cent bin several years ago. My mom says "Fabric needs to age before you use it..." Does this work for paper too? I think I got this paper like right after Diem was born. She will be 4 this month! SO. It is definitely time to use it. Rest of the paper came out of scraps from other cards. But the red paper right behind her I stamped the SU Medallion with Riding Hood Red, and then "Rock N' Roll" Black Versafine before I stamped it on the paper. I have never used this stamp before. So Lena over at Scrapbutterfly would be so proud of me for using one of my "new" stamps. Once I did the red and black, I figured I should accent my lovely Bombshell with the same colors. She seems to stand out a little bit more now. :) The tag is stamped with a Penny Black sentiment in Versafine accented with the Riding Hood Red. It reads : "I love that you love me..." I feel like this is a great sentiment for a soldier sending home a Valentine to their loved ones. I received this great tag from WRAK, and the embellishments came from my stash. I think I got the polka-dotted flowers from Big Lots, and the silver flower from Mike's.
I adore this card, and I really do not want to part with it. But it is for a great organization! If you haven't done so, you should really check out Operation Write Home. Sandy (The West Coast shipper) is in dire need of cards right now! So every little bit helps!
