I was still playing with Valentine cards and ideas, when I saw Creative_Sketches sketch for this week. I love the ideas and versatility that I got from it, and had a hard time deciding what direction I was going to go with it all! :)
I decided that my theme, besides being a Valentine card, was going to be a musical one.
I used the horse from "Enjoy the Ride" from Flourishes, cut out and popped up on popdots and colored in with Tombows. I used all MME papers, with "Lost & Found" music paper, to go with the musical theme. The patterned vellum is from Hambly Studios. I used Spellbinders Ovals and Scalloped Ovals to make the frame, then used Spellbinders "Classic Lace" die for the ribbon border. I used MFT Rose die to make the paper roses, topped of with some lovely pearls from Basic Grey.
I decided to Not use flowers for this Valentine's card, just to try something different. So I pulled out my carousel horse image, and thought of the musical theme. Painting animals are not my specialty, but I like how it turned out. I painted it like a pinky Valentine horse I would love to ride :)
I really like the sketch, the non use of flowers, and it all coming together for a different and unique Valentine's Day card.. Since I seem to be bucking the trend, here, do you think I can make a St. Patrick's Day card, next month, without the use of any clover stamps....?
Hmmmm... I think I threw down the gauntlet and challenged to myself..... ;)
