Another quick one today. Here's a card for a "Non-traditional" (meaning no hearts and/or no traditional colours) Valentine's Day card challenge for a local stamping club. All stamped images are from Stampin' Up! "Love" was stamped with white pigment ink and coloured over with coloured pencil. A technique from TJ Newsletter, Feb '05 issue. I did copy this layout/sketch from one of the magazine subscriptions a while back. Hope you like!

Have a great Sunday!

Hi Manna,
I just dropped by to see what you were doing. I really like this card. There is one thing I would change about it and that is the bottom left corner sentiment. I'd try a more elegant writing (you already know me :P, I'm helpless)white embossed directly on the black cardstock. I think you should make one like that for me for Valentine's day :)
Oh, and one more thing: I have finally tried your anti-static bag with heat embossing. The result: TOTAL SUCCESS. Thanks for sharing that trick. I would have been frustrated forever without it. I'll soon post the link on my blog so more peope can find out about it.
