Inspired by Melissa...

A friend asked me to make a Valentine for her 13 year old daughter to give her friend for a Valentine gift exchange. I figured this would be a good opportunity to get another entry in for the PTI Anniversary Day 1 challenge, this time inspired by Melissa Phillips.

I chose the project on the top left from which to work. I loved the stamped panel on the right coupled with the big flowers. My friend wanted a sentiment on the card, so I just shifted the flowers off to the side. 

I was also inspired by this photo from Pinterest:

I know, I know, it's aqua and pink again, but I changed it up a little with the charcoal and the chevron! I used a lot of different stamp sets on this one, from various companies. I think they all worked pretty well together! The sentiment on the front is computer generated, printed onto MFT Cotton Candy card stock. Everything was popped up on the card front to add plenty of dimension, since she's hand-delivering this.

I promise, my next offering will be a different color combo. I had leftovers that were waiting to be used up on my desk, but I promise, something different is coming! And NO Rosie Posie. I think I'm in a Rosie Posie rut... No more! Thanks for putting up with my color rut! :)
