Pattern on Pattern Valentine

Happy Wednesday everybody:

Today I am sharing a "pattern on pattern" project.  And I am using the Tags & More 3 - Leaves cutting die by Elizabeth Craft Design which is available at One Happy Cut

I wanted to create a less feminine Valentine so I went with some neutral color card stock.  But I can't help myself but to use some crimson and pink pattern paper and for the stamping.

Let's take a look:


What do you think?  Is it less feminine than the floral kind?  I used a clear gel pen to go over the sentiment adding a little more interest, and added Stickles (Sprinkled Sugar) to the etched heart. Both these stamps are new additions to my stash.

Here's a close up of the sparkly etched heart:


There is still time to play our January challenge: new technique/die/stamp/colors, something you're using or trying for the first time.  Our sponsor this month is One Happy Cut.  Winner of this month's challenge would receive a $15 gift certificate to their store.


Supplies for my card:

Elizabeth Craft Design cutting die: Tags & More 3 - Leaves 
Hero Arts stamp: You Are My Happy
Hero Arts stamp: Love By Lia
Gelly Roll gen pen: Clear
Ranger Stickles: Sprinkled Sugar
Memories Dye ink: Crimson
