MTSC25 - Be My Valentine

This card is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge MTSC25. Don't you just love the sketch? Mercy has really been coming up with some awesome sketches lately!!

I used the Happy Heart Day stamp set from SU. I couldn't wait to pull it out again and use it for some Valentine's card. It's one of my favorite stamp sets. (Do I say that a lot or what? LOL) The elephant has been paper pieced with some gray paper from the Ghostly Greetings designer paper from SU. I painted his toenails white with the White Signo Gel Pen from SU. Instead of coloring the heart from the stamp on top of his trunk, I used a heart brad that I had. I colored the flowers with Copics and cut the scallop oval mat layer with the Slit Punch from SU. The lacy border is a Martha Stewart border punch I got this past Friday at Michaels. All the Martha Stewart crafts at Michaels were 30% off. Woohoo, I'm always up for a bargain. I pierced the main image piece and the top white piece on the card with SU's Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The ribbon is SU's Basic Gray Taffeta.

I hope you enjoy looking at the card as much as I had fun making it. To play along with Mercy's sketch check out her blog. Thanks for coming by to check me out.
