Be Mine

Happy Wednesday to you! I am on my way out the door to visit with a friend, but I wanted to pop in a share another Valentine's Day Card with you.

By the way, in case you are unaware, the super sweet Winter Sims has put together a Card Drive for the children at St. Jude's Children Hospital. She is planning on hand delivering the cards (on her own vacation time!) in time for Valentine's Day. So stop by her blog and check it out (there is a prize available too!) and hopefully you too can create some cards to cheer up some children in need.Now on to the card... The tree top and scalloped border were both punched from spring moss cardstock, stamped with text (from Background Basics: Text Style) in ripe avocado and then distressed. I think I may have gone a little crazy with my Edge Distressing Tool! Lol! Wrapped the scalloped border with pink embroidery floss.
Then embellished the tree top with pink heart brads, placed it over a white cardstock block stamped with the tree base and sentiment (from Heart Prints), rounded the top corners and distressed the bottom edge.

Hope you are having a great week, talk at you later!
