Vintage Valentine.....

I love being able to whip up a card in less than 3 hours in my craft room! Anyone who knows me, knows it takes me FOREVER to create a card. Usually by the time I color it, matte it, embellish it, sew it........it is very time consuming. I envy people who can create beautiful cards in a short period of time! So today, I have a less than 3 hour card to share with you! LOL! How did I do it you inquire? Well.......start with this adorable image from the Crafty Secrets Seasonal Image and Journal Notes booklet. Coloring? Nope! Already done! I chose Melissa Frances papers, sewed them and added pearls to the corners. I used my Sakura glue pen to outline the image and added some SU! glitter. I also added glitter to the angel's heart and hat. I added a doily (My favorite obsession lately!), ribbon and a pretty button!

See all of the sparkle?

So.....my time in my scrap room has been a wee bit limited lately. I had to work on homework last night for my grad class. Bummer. It ends the 27th and until then, I have to act like a hard working student! : )
Have a wonderful day!!! Thanks for visiting me!

What a charming card! I love all things vintage! You have much more patients than me though, I could never spend more than 3 hours on a card, LOL.

This is absolutely beautiful! And I totally understand the time factor! When I do colored image cards they take a bit of time, for sure! Even my non-image ones can! LOL! But, that's the fun of it!!!
