Valentine's Day.. Yeah!!!

ETA: The TPE blog is hosting a new challenge. I love all their challenges, and this week's theme  is "Valentines", these two cards fall under that category. So hop over there and take a look at all the gorgeous entries.

Hello girls! I hope you are having a fabulous day. I promised on Thursday to come back again to share the other cards I made last week. So, here I’m! But before I do that, I would like to thank you for all your wonderful comments about the card I posted on Thursday. You really made my day! Now onto the cards - shall we?

The first card:
I used Bo-Bunny’s patterned paper. I fell in love with this paper immediately when I saw it at the scrapbook store. Is it adorable? I used it as part of the focal point along with the heart stamp from PTI.

ETA:  Woo hooo!!! I made the top 25 with this card!!

The sentiment is from PTI also, and it is part of the heart prints set. I added a little bit of glitter to the birds and the lady bugs to make them pop!

I wanted to add ribbon, but I thought that the ribbon would add to much distraction from the focal point. So, I decided to add a small red button instead. I do love the little touch that it adds to the card.

Now onto the second card:
This is a simple but elegant card. I pierced little holes at the top of the card near the patterned paper. I used a strip of Vintage Tee patterned paper from Basic Grey. I love, love this paper!

As you can see in this close-up, I added some glitter to the card. The heart trim is from my stash. I used white organza ribbon to tie the bow.

The sentiment is from PTI ~ heart prints set. I wanted to use a red button on the card, but it didn’t work for me so I ended up using a white one. I really like using together two shades of the same color. It really adds a lot of interest to the card.

Okay girls! I think that’s about all. Tomorrow is Valentines’ Day, Yeah!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!
