Happy Valentine's Day

I hope you are all sharing some love with family, friends or that special someone. Try and give a little kindness today to a stranger; you never know what their burden may be.
I created this card without any of the traditional V Day colors AND used my stash. I’ve been trying to clean out stuff so I’m finding all kinds of things I forgot about. Isn’t that always the case?

Just a simple sentiment inside the card. That's all it needed.
For those of you who do not go to CHA, there is a ton of make and takes and I did a few. And then a few more. So I saved all my stuff and incorporated a few little things in my card.
I used the following on this project:
K and Co ephemera collection and buttons
Co’ordination Cardstock
Want2Scrap pearls
Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks (Wild Plum and Stream)
And of course, Helmar’s Glue to stick it all down! I used 450 and Gemstone
Mosaic tiles from CHA

The flower came from a make n’ take @ Lindys Stamp Gang….. Lovin’ their stuff. Aren’t the colors vibrant? They have some “Try Me” packages for their sprays. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be getting my hands on some soon.

I adhered these tiles with Helmar's Gemstone and the Flower with 450. I know you hear me say alot about Helmar Glues but they really are great. They have never failed me. I ran the cardstock through my cuttlebug and used the alcohol inks on a sponge dabber this time and added a little demension to all the pieces.  I also change the color of the pearls, I love that I can do that with the inks. Pretty convenient.
I hope you enjoy the non-traditional theme of this card. Have a great day!
