Card061Or at least everybody who entered the Valentines Day Card Contest. Remember that you need to use at least one Frog’s Whiskers Ink stamp in your design. Winner of the contest for February is Helen of Toronto with her Card…. “I Love You”

This is a case of where less worked best. The main heart stamp L705 Lace Heart was used as the centre piece and C96 I Love You was stamped inside the heart. A layered strip to each side with punched out hearts completed the look to make a perfect Guy Card.
