Valentine candy

It's almost Valentine's Day!  I'm having tons of fun with some love themed crafting lately.  Today I have a card using Create a Critter 2.  I cut the heart candy box at 3 inches to fit the card base the way I wanted. 

I used three scraps of Valentines paper from last year for the background, and then stamped my sentiment (from Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings Valentine's Edition) on a hand-cut grey banner.  I added a grey button in the other top corner to balance it out.



This card is being entered into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp- Wednesday challenges, Have a Heart
Jaded Blossom- Crafter's Choice
Craftin Desert Divas- Red, Pink, or White Linky Party
Bitten by the Bug 2- Valentine Hearts
Fantabulous Cricut- Seeing Red (or white or pink)
Pause, Dream, Enjoy- Crafty Playtime Linky Party, Hearts
Pin It
