Love and Friendship

Hi there,

Well I'm back again this morning sharing a Valentine card or it could be a wedding themed card as well.  It's a stamp from Red Rubber Designs. You can find it HERE .  It is an Unmounted set. I've had this one in my stash of Valentine stamps so I decided to color it up and make an easel card to play in some challenges this week.  I partial fussy cut the heart and left the bottom portion just rounding the corners.  Added the postage stamp die behind it and the banner is new to me. I'm trying to keep to my New Year's resolution to use what I have!!!  Anyhow just love how this turned out! These stamps are very vintage so if thats what you like go take a look.  They have lots of great images and are fun to color.  Spend $50 and shipping is free in the US.
