Casing Vicki D



I just loved this fabulous, CAS Valentine's Day card Vicki posted on her blog last week (second card on her post).  I switched out the colours, added a ribbon across the top and a button on the heart. The sentiment is from Verve's Love Notes.  Love this set as it has so many wonderful Valentine's sentiments.

If I had PTI's linen embossing plate in my possession rather than on my wish list, I would have used it on the card front for a bit of soft texture.  Thanks to some birthday money, it will soon be off my wish list and in my hot little hands :)

Off to drive my daughter to her Grade 3 piano exam.  She's doing her Grade 3 exam today and then her Grade 4 exam in June as it is a challenge year - one in which she does two grades in one year.  Sure she will do wonderfully well as she has a natural gift for playing and the songs she chose this time round she has mastered fabulously :)  So proud of her!

 

What's In It? 
Stamps:  Love Notes (Verve) 
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Real Red 
Ink: Black 
Accessories: Heart Nesties, 5/8" Red Satin Ribbon, Button, Twine, Glue Dot, Dimensionals
