Fun n Flair

** Please scroll down for the MTME Pretty Patterns #80 post **

Hi there!  We're baaaackkk!!!  And we have a very sweet release this month.  Selina has created some adorable sentiments for Valentine's Day.  Now I'm going to preface this post with Valentines is so not my thing.  It wasn't even our thing when my husband and I were together.  So mission will be to show you how you can use these sentiments for something other than Valentine's Day.  Just not today.  This is really card for that auspicious occasion.


I had a coupon for Michaels and they currently have a pretty cute paper pack called Love by Recollections. So I had some fun with it.  I followed a great sketch from Unscripted Sketches, pulled out some new dies and old dies and made this card.  I think it turned out rather cute, it would've been nicer if I had some gold metallic paper for the key, but hey, this works!

Be sure to stop by Fun 'n Flair so you can get your hands on "It's All About Love" stamp set.  And be sure to come back tomorrow to join us for the next challenge.
