Mad 'Bout U

Hello there,

Yeah, I am still doing the disappearing act now and then! But I've been visiting you more often, huh? :-) Busy month ahead again! My brother-in-law is getting engaged soon and that's keeping me busy!

But here's my card for today:


I am submitting it for two challenges:
Card Patterns : for their sketch 98
Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings : for their Challenge 16 (Heart Theme)

I was in a mood to make a Valentine's Day card so the heart theme at RRR was just perfect.... 

I feel something's still missing in the card but can't figure out what. Here is the recipe anyway:

Cardstock : Fabriano from my stash
Patterned Paper : RAK from Yvonne
Stamps : The letter stamps are an old one from Hobby Ideas (I finally have got the hang of using them on a make shift block); the scattered hearts stamp is also from an old Hobby Ideas set
Others : I made the ribbon flower from a tutorial I saw at the RRR blog (wonder why I never saw their blog earlier!); the hearts are scallop punched and everything else is from my stash.


Hope you liked it.

Ciao,
Smita
