Blue Valentines

I'm back in my crafty corner today with a variation of the card I posted earlier this week. This time the Penny Black Hillflowers were stamped with blue Memento ink on half glossy paper and embossed with fine clear powder.

The music notes from the Penny Black Clearly in love set, were stamped with Distress inks. The background was also made with Distress inks and the flowers got Distress Stickles for some dimension. The corners were cut with a Quickutz die. And a lush ribbon to create some umph.

Sounds easy peasy, uh? But the first try went to the bin, some days are like that...oh, and I listened at Tom Waits' Blue Valentines when making it. Says something about my mood today!

I would like to enter:

Have a wonderful day my friends, without the blues!
