Vintage Valentine

Hello Thursday!  I am waiting anxiously for Friday and the weekend!  Today I am combining the beautiful valentine colors from the ColourQ Challenge #174 with the Mojo Monday Sketch #278 and the vintage images of PaperArtsy.

I don't know about you but I have a few Valentines I need to make and my brother has a Valentine's birthday. So I have to create a variety of valentine's cards.  The colors from the challenge mix the browns, red and pink hues together which is a good balance for a masculine valentine. 

I stamped the sweet boy image on the right half of the heart and added the stripes from another stamp to the other half. I punched out the heart and was going to stamp something else on it but thought it would be fun to continue with the stripes.

The background was an embossed scrap never used and decided to bring in some texture and color in the background.
