I [heart] U! Cat

Happy Sunday,

Today I got started on my Valentine making.  I am trying to use up my old stock and goodies.  One of my goals for this year is to use as much of my paper hoard as possible.  It has really been hard to keep from buying more paper ... oh woe is me!?!???

I love the play of the soft and bright colors in the background paper.  I tried to mimic the arcs of the background paper with the doodling in the scallops of the heart.

I used the same heart cut in 1/2" and 1" cuts for the inside of the card.  I think it turned out rather cute.

Here are the details:
Card size:  A2 (4.25" x 5.50")
Dk Brown mat:  4.125" x 5.375"
Patterned paper mat:  4.0" x 5.25"
Inside Dk Brown mat:  4.0" x 5.25"
Inside Ivory mat:  3.75" x 5.0"
Cat:  FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS, Cat8 + Card8-s cut @ 3.30" + all layers
Heart:  FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS, Pawheart, cut @ 0.50", 1.50" and 3.80".  Layer cut @ 0.50" and 1.50"
Cardstock:  Darice (Core'dinations - Dk Brown, Hot Pink, Lt Gray, Ivory and White)
Patterned Cardstock:  American Crafts (Metropolitan)
Stamp:  Cardz TV Stamps (Happy Days, Happy Valentine's Day!)
Color Medium:  Zig (Writer - Chocolate) and Sukara (Jelly Roll - White)
Accents:  Darice (Self-stick Gems - Heart Shaped)

This is entered in the following challenges:
