Sweet Stampin' ~ Valentine's/Love

Hey there lovelies. I've been helping at my sister's 'friends' baby shower today, so I'm chasing my tail and sneaking in a little late to share my DT creation for our latest challenge at Sweet Stampin'. We're having a Valentine's/Love challenge. So smooch on up to your loved one or like me, feel free to interpret the theme a little differently...

Maybe you recall this fabulous Unity Stamps set from a previous creation I blogged that I made for my niece when she was off to France on exchange for 10 months. You can pop over to take a peek at that one here. I love how versatile and how deeply etched and beautifully made these Unity Stamps images are. I love this one to bits and I'm sure this will be inked again before long. Very different from my first creation using this set but I utterly LOVE how this came out. 

There's so much beauty and detail in the paper I've used, there was nothing much more needed than the stamping to finish the card. Though I did think the compass was a fun finish with a bit of grosgrain ribbon. I wanted to keep it masculine as it was a birthday pressie for my brother, who had recently returned from a world trip. So rather then tie a bow to attach the charm, I simply used a tiny black safety pin!

Head on over to the challenge blog to see what my talented teamies have been up to for this challenge. I love how different our interpretations of a theme can be and those girlies are so talented, you're sure to be inspired. 

Do come and play along with us if you're doing some Valentines crafting. We'd love to see how you interpret the theme. I'll pop back tomorrow to update some of the extra details of the card. Hugs until then, Wends xoxo

Love your take on this challenge theme Wends...not being a huge fan of valentine cards myself this interpretation really appeals to me! It IS a fabulous stamp, could be used for so many occasions, beautiful paper and the compass finishes it perfectly without spoiling the clean design. Your brother will love it!
Hope the baby shower went well!
