Happy Tuesday Folks!
Are you ready for another Midnight Madness challenge? All these Valentine's heart cards I'm seeing in blogland are just gorgeous! Some of them are so creative and it shows you are all in the Valentine's spirit!
Congratulations to all our winners this week.

This week I decided to make two cards using one of Priscilla's images. I couldn't decide which to use after I had colored them so I used both! The first card I cut the heart wreath out, added a metal charm in the center and used lots of stitching.
On my second card I used the image with distressed edging then used some Moonglow stains on the background dp from Lindy's Stamp Gang. Moonglow Moon Shadow in van Dyke Sepia and Starburst Stains in Creme Brulee Cream. I also embossed the dp on the second card.
Flowers are from Prima and pearls from Michael's
Here are the two cards together so you can see the difference with the two images!
Please take the time to visit my DT sisters and leave them some love!
Thanks for stopping by!
