CTC 65 - Be My Valentine

Welcome to another CASE-ing The Catty challenge hop, this week is all about Valentine's and we are taking inspiration from anywhere within the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues.  I am also entering this card in the Just Us Girls Valentine's challenge.

I have chosen the card on the right of the above image from page 38 of the Occasions Catalogue.

I decided to use the gorgeous Have A Cuppa DSP Stack on page 35 of the catalogue and stayed with the monochromatic colour pallet  with Bermuda Bay, White and a hint of grey and silver. I did use the same stamp set as the original from Going Global which has such a lovely sentiment.

Here it is up close, you can see that I have re-stamped the image and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder onto Bermuda Bay card stock, then cut out just the banner which is attached with some Dimensionals. You might be able to see the Wink of Stella that I have added to the banner, spotting the same treatment to all the little hearts is a bit hard in the photo, but it looks lovely in person.

Each week we invite you to join us by creating a project inspired by anything Valentine in either the Occasions or the SAB catalogues then add a link to your project on the main CTC website here:

Thanks for visiting my blog, time to hop on over to Kathryn's blog to see what she has inspired to create.
