Oliver and Olivia are ready for Valentine's Day!

Hello all!!! I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas Day yesterday!!! Mine was spent very quietly and peacefully. I got some more unpacking done and actually got things hung on the walls!! And yes, I even got some stamping done! (What gave that away?)

The color challenge on SCS this week was to use Orchid Opulence, So Saffron and Cameo Coral. These are definitely colors I would not have put together on my own!! I don't use Orchid Opulence a lot anyway!

My card also uses the Dirty Dozen's sketch challenge for December! Jesse chose this sketch and I really like it! My card here is a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" square, but I want to try this out on a regular sized card.

I used the new Owlentine set from Treehouse Stamps (I know, again!), but this time as an actual Valentine card!! I thought the colors from the CC were perfect for making a Valentine card.

I used two CB folders on here, but they got covered up quite a bit! The leafy branch is on the large shimmery white panel and floral fantasy is used on the cameo coral piece.

I received the tiny heart stick on rhinestones from my secret Goofy Gobbler last month. She (Carol) sent me a package with all sorts of different rhinestones. Not sure how well you can see, but I also put one on the heart inside the "O" of the sentiment!!

I used my watercolor wonder crayons to color the owls and for shading. I love to use my WWC on Shimmery white, as they color so smoothly.

If you get a chance check out the SCS Dirty Dozen this month! It's open to everyone for the month of December.

Happy Stamping!!!
