Seeing spots

I have another Valentine to post today! My friend Julie was going to have some of us over today to stamp for a great cause...Card Cupids. But the kids are home from school because of the rain/snow/ice that has been falling so I'll just have to work on my cards here from home.

I had fun with this card because I colored the image with Copics and then went to match my paper and yuck, the pinks were off with everything that I had! So, I went from there and made my own background piece to let the elephant shine. I stamped the Bitty Dots (the elephant and bitty dots stamps are free sets when you spend $30 over at The Angel Company - and right now you get 3 free until the end of January, woohoo!) in black and that looked nice, but I wanted some texture. My cyber friend, Kim McNutt, uses multiple textures ALL over her cards and it always makes them so interesting. I just lined up my CB folder up to the edge of the dots and embossed. Then I flipped the card around and did that to the other easy and it really did add a lot to the card. I also used some tools I haven't in a while - my cropadile and Marvy scallop punch!

I hope you are having a safe, warm and happy Wednesday!
