Another Valentine...

February seems to be all about Valentine's Day, at least in the crafting world. In my little corner of the world it's not really an event that is celebrated or acknowledged. I did make a few cards though, of course!

Over at the Design Dollies Elements Challenge this week, Adina challenged us to 'get romantic':

I'm entering my card at:
# Paper Sundaes ~ Challenge #56 ~ Toppings (pink and lace)
# Sentimental Sundays ~ Challenge #42 ~ Red, pink , white
# Allsorts ~ Week 90 ~ All about the sentiment

The sentiment is an epoxy sticker - the quote is by Thoreau: "There is no remedy for love but to love more". I 'framed' the sentiment by matting it and placing it inside the card, showing through a diecut window (Spellbinders Nestabilities, Labels Three).

(This card is another tiny step towards achieving my New Year's Resolution to reduce my old stash by 50% - some little scraps of BoBunny paper, ribbon and lace offcuts, and the sticker, which I received in a colour swap over a year ago).
