Valentine Love Potion

I decided I needed a break from wintry cards for a bit so I decided to make a Valentine's Day card. I just got this new DP when my sister, daughter and I took a road trip up to NH on Saturday to by some new Copics at a great store in Dover, NH. I seem to have lots of Valentine things that I bought and haven't used yet. This is one of the cute stamps from Kraftin' Kimmies that I got for Christmas, I just love the idea of the love potion. I just got the Spellbinder heart nesties and couldn't wait to use them. Everything just seemed to fall into place when making this card!

There was lots of challenges that would fit this card so here they are

Crazy For Challenges C4C20-This challenge had the great sketch that I used for this card, it was great because it left a lot of room for my own interpretation.
Allsorts Challenge Week 35-The challenge this week is to use the colors brown and pink, I love these colors together!
One Stop Craft Challenge 63-They asked us to use fancy edges or corners. I used both on my card and both with a heart theme to them.
Polka Doodles week 2-This challenge is all about love and what says love better that a love potion like this one in the image!
Crafty Creations Challenge 51-The challenge this week is Valentines or love. I think this cute image makes a great Valentine and will also put a smile on a face. Who wouldn't like a bottle of love potion.
Quixotic Challenge #10-My old stamp is the Be Mine I used on the heart. I have had this stamp for many, many years. It is part of a Rubber Stamp Tapestry set. It is the perfect size and saying for a Valentine card so I use it often on my Valentine cards.
Creative Card Crew Challenge 43-The challenge is punch it. I love punches so this was an easy challenge. I used a Paper Shaper corner punch and a MS heart border punch.
Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 87-This challenge this week is to use lots of layers. I love using layers on my card the more the better! Fun challenge to do.
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Challenge #13-A color combo,pink, red, and chocolate with hearts! This combination makes a great challenge. I used the colors pink and chocolate when I colored then added red hearts for shine on the card. This stamp was so much fun to play with.
Papertake Weekly Challenge-This challenge Pretty Pink Papertake, is to use mostly pink on your card. I have lots of different shades of pink on this card. Didn't really plan it when I started working on it just kind of evolved into it. I really like pinks so all is good!

These are all fantastic challenges, take a minute to check them out and play along with the ones you like!
