Valentine's Day With Mama Elephant's Three Amigos

Hi Everyone,

The time is surely flying! We barely got out of the Christmas craze, and Valentine's Day is already just around the corner! Are you ready for it? :o)

I wanted to create a trifold card for my hubby this year, and decided to challenge myself a little bit and try fitting my Valentine's Card into a blog challenge or two... The trifold idea suited perfectly for the fancy folds challenge, however I struggled a little bit more with the photo inspiration challenge (see photo at the end of the post) - I didn't have any images with an envelope! I rummaged through my stash, started thinking a bit outside the box and... voila, an idea came to my head! I decided to draw my own envelope in the hands of this cute little creature from the Mama Elephant "Three Amigos" stamp set. I think it looks pretty neat, doesn't it?!

The rest of the card is really quick and simple - some embossing with an addition of distress inks, some sequins for a bit of bling, a bit of Glossy Accents here and there... the hubby came back from a walk with the Little One just in time for me to have it finished & hidden away, phew! Oh, I also stamped the little guy inside the card, and made him present my message! :o)

I hope you like it!

I am entering the card into the following challenges:

Seven Hills Crafts - Fancy Folds
Sparkle And Shine - Photo Inspiraton

A Gem of a challenge - Love is in the air
QKR Stampede - Valentine Cards
Crafty Friends - Animals/Birds
Inky Chicks - Love and/or Hearts

Have a great Valentine's Day!
