Vintage Valentine and a little Happy Dance


You know that feeling when someone besides your husband actually likes your work? I was feeling a little blue about being a nobody and in the past 24 hours, I have been chosen for Pile It On's Top 3, Little Red Wagon's Top picks AND Card Universe has chosen one of my cards as their Featured Photographs..... Please join me in the Happy Dance.....
Not much time tonight but found a wonderful site for Vintage images ----> HERE
I printed the Angel Valentine image from them, used a Nestie to die cut, inked the edges and popped it up on foam squares.

I used the Paper Craft Planet sketch and basically just made it My Own by not using a circle behind my main image and instead of a sentiment, I added the wire ribbon bow w/a metal heart charm. I also flipped both of these items from how they were placed on the original sketch.
Alrighty, thank you so much for stopping by. Let me know what you think; your comments always make my day.

Challenges:
Paper Craft Planet: Sketch sk012310
Cuttlebug Challenges: Vintage Valentine
Little Red Wagon: Hearts (I used the metal heart charm)
The Pink Elephant: Polka Dots, A Bow & Pink (polka dots are on my heart charm, 2 different color pinks matting my image and a wire ribbon tied into a bow)
Flutter By Wednesday: Butterfly, Fairy or Angel (I have a sweet little cherub w/wings)
