Little Miss C's Valentine

I changed things up a bit from my last Valentines card and decided to go with matching papers from the Colorbok Bright Ideas line. I really liked that the words on this were about cherishing friends and family. Little Miss C treasures both and I knew she would like these words too.
I picked up this Paper Pad quite some time ago at a shop that specializes in closeout stock. Think I paid $3.00 for the 12x12 Pad and then I promptly cut one of each pattern in four to make 6x6 stacks. I must remember to use it again as the paper weight was quite nice to work with.


The brightly flowered ribbon is very old. It was used for a scrapbook layout I made for Little Miss C when she was about a year old...6 long years ago! It has been languishing about ever since and I unearthed it when I organized my room. Luckily for me, I had a package of self adhesived felt hearts that matched the colour fairly closely.

Here is a shot of the inside...

Recipe:
Base card and envelops - 5 1/2 inch square textured card from my stash
DP - Colorbok Bright Ideas Paper Pad
Card Stock - skinny snippet of textured pink from my stash
Ribbon - from my stash
Bling - pearls from my stash
Embellishments - self adhesived felt heart and white glittery resin heart from my stash
Sentiment - Authentique Lovely Elements words; the inside sentiment is from the same sticker page

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - must cover card front with paper

So very pretty Mo, I always think pink and green make a perfect colour palette. That paper pad sounds like a bargain.

So adorable - wonderful Valentine! I love these little elephants - if that made miniature elephants (and I mean really miniature) I would get one to put with my goats and hens.
