You have through SundayJan 22  to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win.

To make my Valentine card, I had a tag and little strip of water color background & thought the colors would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I also had a little piece of white w/ the negative (left over part) of a die cut & trimmed the bottom to fit the tag; just to dress it up a bit. The Mini Scallop & Scroll dies were cut out of a paint chip I found w/ colors that went w/ my watercolor tag. One of the colors was “Coral Kiss” & I thought that went as well, so I left it. The little hearts were cut out using the Love die & the top 3/4 of the white panel was embossed w/ a woodgrain folder to add a little texture.

Here’s a look at the inside. 

Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
