Valentine Collage

While at my local scrapbooking store, I was trying really hard to just buy the necessities ... but couldn't help picking up a package of Echo Park paper - Victoria Garderns by Cassandra Cooper.  It is so beautiful and perfect for making Valentine cards!  I made this card a while ago (it went to my mom for Valentine's day) but haven't had a chance to load it up yet.

Such a different style for me.

The only stamping on this card is the sentiment from Beyond Basic Borders (Papertrey Ink).  That stamp was an element on one back side of a page, I just cut it out using my deco scissors to become a stamp!  The larger flower was from the sticker page.  The heart-shaped doily was from one of my former Secret Sisters (thanks Linda!). 

So fun to play around with such lovely papers!!

Love this Donelda. Love the images you used and it made a gorgeous Valentine. I love the rose and the image that looks like a postal stamp. Great job!

Such a beauty, Donelda! I love the soft colours, and how you combined the different elements. (Good patterned paper can be such fun, can't it?) :)
