First of the Valentines

Who doesn't love basic Grey paper? I used some scraps to make this card which turned out to be a Valentine....time to get some cards made for that special day.  Used a sketch from Card Patterns to tie everything together.  Lot of "tieing" in this card.
Basic Grey Challenges: Dots or spots. Used Olivia patterned papers.
Card Patterns: Use Sketch 97 shown on the right
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge: Use tons of Texture. May not be tons but have texture in dry embossing on card base, texture of the wrapped twine and bow, and metal of the cupid charm.
Wee Memories Challenge: Design with some twine. Mat is wrapped with twine and tied on a bow.
The Paper Players Challenge: Theme is Valentine's Day.
Craft Your Passion Challenge: Theme is to tie one on. Twine is tied around white mat and in a bow on heart. 

Paper: Basic Grey Olivia; White, Green, Pink CS from stash and scraps.
Stamp: GKD Fanciful Tags Sentiment
Ink: Memento Bamboo Leaves
EK Success Corner Punch
Nesties: Circle, Scallop Circle,Scallop Oval, Scallop Hearts
Cuttlebug: EF Swiss Dots
Twine: think it is SU
Cupid Charm: Part of old earring

Thanks for dropping by...still snowing here and a gloomy day.
Enjoy your weekend.
