Good morning and happy Monday!  Are you ready for 2013 to be over?  I know I am!  It’s been a pretty tough year around here but I’m happy to report that things are finally on an upswing.    Now I just have to get my mojo going in the same direction!

I’ve worked in the studio all weekend and sadly only ended up with a couple of cards.  One I showed you Saturday and the other I have today.  I had these great ideas but when I started to get them going, everything ended up in the trash.  Saturday night I walked away from it all and just threw my hands up.  Sunday afternoon I headed back in with nothing in mind at all and decided to go through my paper stash to find some inspiration.

Here’s what I came up with . . .

QFD Valentine

Digging deep into the paper stash I found an old pad of My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Blush and the colors hit me right away!  So I figured why not a Valentine’s Day card.

I picked out some coordinating sheets and started the distressing and sponging (Antique Linen).  I really liked the dress form on the one sheet and didn’t want to cover it up, so everything was placed at the top of the card.

The flower were die cut/embossed from other sheets of the paper pad with Spellbinders® Bitty Blossoms.  The leaves were die cut from watercolor paper with Foliage and then inked with Peeled Paint.  Buried deep under it all is a frame made from chipboard that was die cut with Labels Four.  I didn’t realize that I ended up covering the whole damn thing up until I took the picture, but hopefully you can see a little bit poking out at the top and bottom.  The sentiment, Quietfire Design Valentine’s 2013, was stamped in Coffee and then die cut/embossed with Ovals LG.  While the paper was still in the die template it was sponged with Antique Linen.

I guess that’s all for me right now!  Hopefully I’ll be back in soon with another project . . . in the meantime, thanks for stopping by!
