A Pretties Valentine

Here's a card I made for Splitcoast Stampers' Sketch Challenge 161. I thought I'd make it into a Valentine's Day card, since that's what I'm in the mood for!

I finally broke into my Pretties kit for this one. I'm such a hoarder of supplies. I got the kit months ago, but I couldn't bring myself to use them. I always wait for just the perfect project because I don't want to "waste" my supplies! Anyone else like that? I finally just decided to go for it. There really are a ton of flowers in the kit, and I'll have to use them eventually!

Anyway, I started with the designer paper and went from there. This is from the Bali Breeze designer series paper. I decided to go with Purely Pomegranate and Pretty in Pink to accent it. I dyed the big flower with my Pretty in Pink Stampin' Write marker and the little flower with my Purely Pomegranate ink pad (I just smooshed it into the pad!). The rhinestone brad is also from the Pretties kit. The sentiment is from Holidays and Wishes, stamped in Pomegranate.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you all have a great weekend! It's finally starting to warm up here, so I'm hoping to get out of the house this weekend!
