My Fussy Valentine....

Well....I went the cute route for a's
the elegant version, and it's actually for the
challenge over at JustRite Stampers.  It's
a sketch challenge (#88), you can find it
HERE, and here is the sketch....

And here is my entry:
The details:  Paper:  MME Lost and Found Union Square 6x6
                   Spellbinders:  JustRite Nested Sentiment dies
                                        Samantha Walker Twisted Metal Tags & Accents
                   Stamps:  JustRite Vintage Floral Labels (this is the black scroll,
                                 medallion type stamp that is stamped onto the burgandy
                                 paper behind the sentiment)
                                 JustRite Just Because Vintage Labels (the "Hugs & Kisses"
                                 sentiment stamped as the sentiment, and also on the seam
                                 binding bow, and the scroll stamped around that sentiment)
                     Extras:  Want2Scrap Pearls and Swirl Pearls, Trendy Twine (Black
                                  Licorice), May Arts Burlap Ribbon, button from stash.

And because any sketch is open for a bit of interpretation....I use the swirly Spellbinder
die as my "swirl" of ribbon across the top!  

Remember, you can play along too....check them out!
