SCH - A Non-Traditional Valentine

I grew up loving Hallmark commercials...maybe that is why I am so drawn to cards! They have a new commercial for Valentine's Day, and their message is not just "I Love You", but "I Love US." I think that is brilliant. We sometimes forget to show our love and appreciation on other days besides Valentine's Day.


Our challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is to create a non-traditional Valentine. If you would like to see other samples, gather more details, and participate with us, please visit HERE.


I just love this wonderful vintage dress that Tracy has added to the store...it is also wonderful to be able to paper piece it! Thanks for stopping by today...have a marvelous weekend


Card Details:
Stamps: Ladies Frock Together and I Love You badge by Sugar Creek Hollow
Paper: Basic Grey Euphoria; Stampin' Up So Saffron DSP and Kraft
Ink: Kraft for sponging edges
Accessories: Copic markers; Prima flowers; Hobby Lobby ribbon; SU corner and circle punches; Nestabilities

Nancy, this is beautiful! I love how you used paper piecing so that the dress is different colors. The swag is so pretty and I just LOVE that background DP. What a pretty card!

Gorgeous! The paper piecing is fabulous and the color combination is beautiful. Love those yellow roses that just add a wonderful pop to this card. Your papers are very beautiful and really make a vintage statement.
