Not your Typical Valentine image

    After a wonderful and successful day shopping yesterday. I  bought my son (2) hooded sweatshirts for $2.99 each at Michaels. I was able to pick up Halloween stickers for 14 cents and about 6 little wind up Christmas toys for next year for 20 cents each. Oh, and don't forget the cute cling stamps that i was able to get for 30 cents each. What a deal!!! I came home and got busy on another card, but i wasn't able to finish it until today.
     The stamp that i chose today is another Sarah Kay by Stampavie that i had tucked away.  I decided to make this a Valentine card. I know that the image typically wouldn't be used for a Valentine, but it showed "love" to me.  I colored the image with my copic markers again. I mounted it with a Spellbinders frame and then i diecut a scalloped oval from the center.  I used a heart punch from Stampin'up and a heart corner punch from paper studio. I used gold mesh ribbon and colored it with my White acrylic paint dauber from Adirondack. The sentiment is from the bottle cap stamp and die from Whimsy.
