Valentine's Day

It's a very special Valentine's Day this year because it is my Grandson Luca's first time to celebrate it since he is just turning 7 months old.

I just had to make him a card of course and decided to play along with the challenge at Pretty Pink Posh while I was at it.
I used the card that Liz created as my inspiration.

The Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 die was used as the tag focal point along with Pink Blush, Pink Peonie and Sparkling Clear PPP sequins.

I am also entering my card in the Paper Issues Take 5 challenge.

Cardstock: SU
Stamp: Mama Elephant
Dies: PPP, Mama Elephant
Sequins: PPP
Punch: Fiskars
Ink: Versafine
Other: Twine, Copics, Wink Of Stella

I created a layout for this challenge using a photo of my brother and sister-in-law. We always tease both of them that I can NEVER seem to get a decent photo of them!!

I was inspired by the inspiration photo to use the love theme and my "bling" this month is the gorgeous gold foil doily and alphas.
