Five Minute Friday: Valentine's Hop!

Sending Love Your Way

Happy Valentine's Day! Today I'm excited to participate in a Valentine's Day blog hop with my talented teammates on the Facebook Inspiration team for Lawnscaping Challenges.

To create this fun card I used two different Imagine Crafts Fireworks sprays (Angel Pink and Rosebud) and a bit of a bleach/water mix in a spray bottle. Once it was all dry, I stamped my mailbox image in Memento LUXE ink (Rosebud); the sentiment and little postage wavy thing are stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia

Two strips of washi tape and a Studio Calico wooden heart (thanks Laurel!) finished this card off perfectly!


Now for the exciting bits: make SURE you hop along and comment on all of my teammates' blogs, as Spectrum Noir has graciously donated TWO fabulous prize packs to random commenters! 


Here's a list of this fabulous Valentine's party train:

And don't forget there is some serious fun happening over on the Lawn Fawn blog this week too!


Here's a closer look at what I used on this card:
