With Love Valentine, PP378

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the amazing Nance is our hostess with a wonderful sketch challenge.

I was inspired by a hot pink and gold Valentine card that I saw on Pinterest, and combined it with Nance's sketch to come up with this creation. I used two different rectangle dies to create a frame to place over the arrow background, and heat embossed my sentiments in gold, both inside and out. Though the sentiments are from two different manufacturers, I thought they worked very well together. They are very shiny IRL! 

Stamp Sets: Arrow Background Stamp, With All My Heart (Heidi Swapp), Super Script 2 (Altenew)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Doll Pink (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink: Ultra Pink (Hero Arts), Versamark
Tools: Big Shot, Heat Tool, Stitched Circle Dies (Lawn Fawn), Stitched Rectangles (Simon Says Stamp), Nesting Rectangles (Hero Arts)
Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder (Hero Arts), Gold Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

Hot pink and gold look so good together! You've made the paper the star of the show and everything else works around it. Lovely card.

Ahh, so nice Sandy! Love the gold and the sequins too! I tried to color yesterday . . . not so good. Had to keep telling myself to breathe! I didn't even know I was holding my breath.

Gorgeous Sandy - that pink and gold combo is so on-trend and beautifully balanced against the white too. Your sentiments are indeed a perfect pairing - love it when that happens!

Soooo fresh and modern--love it! I'm swooning over both the script sentiments and I adore your gold embossed sentiment on the inside. Such an elegant touch to the inside of the card. Just fabulous my friend!
