Be My Valentine

Morning... a really quick card for you today... and I mean it took me about 8 minutes to make it.. now if only I had followed the colour palette for the 10 Minute dash lol....

There were a number of things that inspired me for this card... the stripes and raised bits from the new Muse challenge being one of them...



Inspiration:
Muse: #1 (Stripes and the raised flower!)


Dynamic Duos: #36 Red & Black


Retro sketches: #47


Card Recipe:
DP & Punch:Stampin UP
Sentiment from PC

That's all from me for today...

  14. Lovely card Jen, the striped background is fab. Oh to be able to create a quick card, I sooo need a craft room rather than a cupboard in one room and a table in another! x
