Happy Valentine's Day SFYTT

Good morning! Just 2 more sleeps and it will be Valentine's Day!! I have a brand new digital paper pack to play with and here is my first project using it! The ever so talented and sweet Melissa Esplin sent me a kit of her new pretty papers to play with, and I was thrilled with all of the patterns! I used just one of them on my card today, but I printed more to play with very soon! The kit I used is called The Love Song and is available at Design House Digital. There are 8 gorgeous patterns in the kit. You can check out all of her designs here, plus she also has a freebie kit for you to try out called Classy Cupid.

I used Jen's latest Sketch For You To Try for my layout. After printing my patterned paper, I double matted it and added a couple of rows of stitching. For my main image, I heat embossed both the heart scroll frame and the sentiment, Happy Valentine's Day. Both are from Verve's Heart's Desire. I loved the circular elements on the sketch (see below for a look), but I didn't want to cover up too much of the patterned paper, so I chose rhinestone circles which left more open space.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!
