Vintage Valentine for Embellish Magazine.com



OK...does this just scream vintage valentine?  I hope so.
It's just a glimpse of my entry for
Embellish Magazine.com's New Year Challenge.



I took a bit of liberty with my shade of red, but I think it works.



I used a few of the papers from GCD Studios'
'Artsy Urban Collection' to get the job done.



You recognize the vintage foil hearts from my recent entry for  
The Play Date Cafe Challenge.
Love playing with that foil! 
The silver metallic is embossed using a Cuttlebug EF.
I 'pinked' up my white crepe paper rosettes with a little VersaMagic ink.
Nothing says vintage like lots of flowers.
thanks to Prima and Making Memories for these beauties!



Add a few satin pearls, gathered trim
and button brads for flower centers.

Speaking of GCD Studios, if you haven't left your comment for the
BIG giveaway, you still have time.

One more thing then I am off to make my husband his favorite
Italian Chicken dinner...
