You are the Music in Me SSNOTIME72




I wanted to submit a card for Sharon's Johnson's Love is in the Air challenge, SSNOTIME72 this week. Making Valentine cards is really a fun project because it allows me to express my love and appreciation to those who bring happiness, peace, and joy into my life. The Valentine card, above (on the left, the inside is shown with ticket) belongs to my husband; he selected it as his favorite over the many others made (those will go to my family and friends :-D The front of the card was die cut with Cuttlebug's Concentric Hearts die and covered with 7 Gypsies musical dp, which was sponged to lighten the cs. The inside ticket, which I found on The 80's Me blog, was cut from a really cute template she has created and is sharing, was sponged using Ranger inks, Tea Dye and Scattered Straw to "man it up" some :-D Spellbinder square nestibilities were also used to frame the sentiment. I found some glittered foam at Mike's one day and die cut for the heart on the front of the card, but found some others, already glittered and heart-shaped at Mike's another day and used those to accent the ticket.
