Alternate Valentine

Happy Hump Day!!  Now that I've spent my hour with the sexiest man alive (Stephen Amell, hello!  I love Adam Levine but he's no Green Arrow....) I can get back to my crafting.  It's been bugging me that all Valentines are so girly.  Pink and red and white, they just scream feminine and I thought, well they don't have to!  They can be any color they want to me.

I decided to make a blue Valentine.  Not only is it PERFECT for a girl to give to her guy, but it's fun and unusual.  I like alternatives to the norm.  They help keep things interesting.


I just love how it came out.  The color and the accents, everything just gelled.  I love projects that turn out like that!


I just had to put glitter somewhere, so I figured the matte Distress Glitter on Cupid's wings would be perfect, 'cause it's glitzy, but still manly.  Plus, he is getting this card from a girl....

I'm entering some challenges of course:


Thanks so much for looking.  Laters!
