oh hello. i heart you!

hi there!!

today i'm just popping in with a card i made for the current Mama Elephant and Me Challenge!
this time they're focusing on Valentine's Cards!!

so fun!
the only cards i like making more than Christmas cards are loooooooooove cards! ha ha! so i couldn't wait to play along! and Mama Elephant knows Love! 

here's my card:

so, i somehow went masculine-like with my card! i didn't start off thinking i would, but that's what happened! 

i stamped the grid triangles from Trifecta (LOVE that set!!) in some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink onto some watercolor paper, then i spritzed it with water! love the bleeding!! 
once that was dry, I masked off a large triangle and stamped it along with a small bold triangle over/under/around some of the distressed triangles.

i heat embossed the sentiment from Hello in gold onto some vellum! yes...gold...on vellum. sigh. so pretty! ha! (and i'm usually not a fan of gold!). i also sprinkled some water onto the base of the card and added the gold embossing powder there, too!

the bubble is popped up over some thread, and then i added some sequins and pearls (deep voice: totally masculine and rugged sequins and pearls *cough cough*)! ha ha!

so that's my card! i hope to play along again!
