Give them your heart

Good morning!

Well, I'm pretty sure that I jinxed myself. Here I was complaining about the lack of snow for Christmas and then it went and snowed all day yesterday. That's what I get for opening my big mouth, LOL! :)

Last week the new challenge went up over on the Some Odd Girl blog and due to the holiday I'm just now getting around to sharing my card for it here. This time around we have a little Valentine photo inspiration challenge for you... something that will get you thinking about the season of love and the new SOG stamps that were just released. ;)
There are plenty of different elements in the photo that you can pull inspiration from, like the wood grain, hearts, the color red, book pages, tickets, etc etc etc. The biggest inspirations that I incorporated onto my card are the hearts, color red and the use of ticket embellishments. I paired those all up with the lovely miss Romantic Gwen. Isn't she dreamy? I have to admit that when I was putting this card together and coloring her up the "my Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa" line from a Rob Thomas song kept playing over and over in my mind. What can I say? I'm kind of a nerd like that, LOL!

So this challenge runs through January 3 and all projects entered must be new as of this challenge, no back linking. You don’t have to use a Some Odd Girl Stamp but if you do you’ll have two entries into the draw! Gotta love that.
Have fun and good luck!
