Cards in Envy Be My Valentine Challenge

Exciting news! Today's post kicks off my first as a member of the Cards in Envy team--yay! This is going to be F.U.N!

If you're not familiar with Cards in Envy, the premise is to make cards that are no more than 1/4" (approx 6mm) thick so they fit in a regular envelope--cards in env(elopes)y. Cute, right?!

Anyway, our challenge this round is to make a Valentine card. Perfect since I wanted to make a V-day card for my partners using a squirrel since he loves them and I love him. I have to admit squirrels can be super cute, especially when mounted on plaid and kraft and bordered in blue! I love this combo of colors, don't you? I didn't have quite the red I wanted for the heart pennant so colored that up ombre style with Copics. I "heart" it--lol!

I'm entering this in Little Tangles 77 Diecutting, Cute Card Thursday 463 Be My Valentine, Simon Says Wednesday Color of Love, Addicted to Stamps and More 227 Make Your Mark, Tuesday Throwdown 328 Love Notes

The Details:  Neat and Tangled My Favorite Nut, Waffle Flower Lacy Layers die, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall 6x6 Paper, Gina Marie Dropped Pennant Die, Ranger Multi Medium Matte, Distress Ink Candied Apple and Vintage Photo, Copics, Taylored Expressions Falling Hearts Coverplate die, PTI kraft cardstock, Waltzing Mouse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die
