I took the opportunity to make a Valentine's Day card for my wonderful hubby:


The background stamp is a fabulous steampunk stamp from a Carabelle set called 'The Heart Has its Reasons". The background is done with Distress Crayons, tissue tape and stenciling.

Overlaying it are die cut gears colored with more Distress Crayons and a Tim Holtz Findings heart charm paired with a Paper Doll.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to head on over to the MMM blog and check out all the inspiration in the challenge post! We'd love to see you join in and share your work with us. Many thanks as well to Topflight Stamps for sponsoring us this month.
