Stamp Something -Valentine ~ Caardvarks - Hearts


This card is a variation on a sketch which I used earlier this week and liked.
I love the colours pink and brown together, but had to use card rather than paper as the pink paper didn't look too pink with the brown behind it! It has made the card rather hefty, but never mind.
The manuscript is a fab background stamp that I really like. It is stamped with timber brown Stazon. The quote, from Hans Christain Anderson reads 'Where words fail, music speaks' Rather an old fashioned Valentine!
The embossing is all Cuttlebug and I rather went mad with the Cat's eyes pigment chalking ink in platinum.
