I started this card with a sketch I found this week at The Paper Players.  I love the sketch Anne Marie created for the challenge and here is my interpretation.

I heat embossed the image using VersaMark ink and black embossing powder.  I always feel like a magician when I use the heat gun.  It feels like magic watching that image turn from plain to shiny in an instant.  This card is the last of my Valentine's day cards that I needed to complete. Now, I just need to get them in the mail on time.  I have a few more samples to show you over the next few days.  I also worked a little on teachers' gifts today, I will post them when I am complete...I think they are going to turn out really cute!

DSP: Mocha Morning Specialty
