Sparkle and Shine Challenge 23 and PPP Valentine Challenge

There's a beautiful inspiration photo for the Sparkle and Shine Challenge 23. It makes me very hungry for cookies and milk!!  (I think I'll bake some tonight)
This challenge is sponsored by Create a Smile Stamps - be sure to check out the wonderful items in their online store!

My version is very similar, using the red and white color scheme, hearts and envelopes.
I cut two "Sending" sentiments, one of the red cardstock used for the scalloped heart and one of shimmer silver cardstock.  I thought using them with a shadow effect stood out more than either of them alone.  The card front is popped up off the card base, as well as the red banner and "Sen" of "Sending" (to keep it flush with the rest of  "Sending").  Otherwise the profile is lower so I can send it easily through the mail.

Items used:
Simon Says Stamp: stitched rectangle die, Sending Happy Thoughts stamp set and coordinating die
Sizzix Tipsy Hearts Originals Die: white center heart
Marvy Uchida Craft Punch: scalloped heart
Create a Smile Stamps:  arrows background stamp
Martha Stewart:  sterling and lady bug embossing powder
Pretty Pink Posh:  red heart confetti

I would also like to enter this into the Pretty Pink Posh Valentine Challenge

Lisa's heart card was my inspiration


  1. Beautiful card! When I look in the middle of the card I see some kind of illusion effect! So fun! :D And I love shadow around the "Sending". :)


  2. I love all the arrows and the silver sentiment!
