Kazan's Sketch 18 at 2s4y

I know that I have done many Valentine's cards, but this is the one I want to give to my hubby. I love the red, black, and white combo and I know how much he will love to receive it. I used Kazan's sketch 18 this week at 2sketches4you for this card. When I saw this card, I knew what I wanted to do with it and I am so glad that it turned out as well as I had hoped it would. It would have been done sooner, but we have had company since Monday and I haven't had a chance to escape to my scrap room. Now, I really must make some other kinds of cards for the rest of the year and stop making Valentine's cards, but I just can't help myself.....LOL Ok, I will make other cards from now on.....well, except the ones I make for my kids (maybe I will give you a peek at them, too).

The size of this card is 4x9 and it fits perfectly into one of those business sized envelopes. I haven never done a card this size, but I will for sure do more in the future.

The cut of the two figures comes from my cricut and Going Places cartridge. I love this cartridge and all the things it has on it, but I don't use it very much. I came across SelahCafe's blog the other day and she has done some cute things with the cuts off of this cart and so, I challenged myself to use a cut off of this cart, too.

Cardstock, ribbon, ink, punches: Stampin' Up!
Stamp: Fancy Pants
Rhinestone hearts: Michaels
Title and images cut with Cricut, Going Places, and Base Camp cartridges
Pins and beads: Joann's
