The layout is straight out of Stampin Success; the colors are my own. When I hit a creative wall, I will often just refer to our demonstrator magazine and, more often than not, inspiration will come!
Today's card uses the stamp set, Valentine Defined which is a new set from the Occasions Mini. It has so many cute elements, one of which is the strings of little hearts. I love that stamp. I wish the set came with a bird that could perch on the line of stamps. That would be so cute! Hmm, I'll have to think about that one!
To make this card I stamped the string of hearts 2 times with Versamark and embosssed with White Embossing Powder. The rest of the card is just various embellishments and elements added for visual interest.
You know, I just now noticed that there is a backwards "Z" on the front of the card! Do you see it? It starts in upper right, goes to the left, then down to the right where the large Red heart is and to the left towards the small Red heart. Okay, it isn't an actual "Z" but it is a visual one!
Did you ever watch Zorro? I don't mean the movies, which I loved too, but the old time TV shows. You can watch them on DVD now. I used to love those shows although looking back, I think the attraction was his horse!
