 A special someone, or rather two special someone's, have an Anniversary coming up soon on Valentine's Day. I decided to try a new blog challenge on for size (hehe) and as I was browsing the internet, I came across this lovely blog for items created with ONLY Stampin' Up! products. (Which can be a challenge in an of itself since I have a plethora of other lovely little babbles splattered around my craft room) SU-Only Challenges is asking for a lovey dovey Valentine creation this week, so I tried to make my card as romantic as possible, for the two love birds who fell in love many moons ago. 
I used this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch to create my canvas and then added a bit of red glitter paper & a rub on (complimentary of SU! to demonstrators) which will have special meaning to the recipients of this card. The lovey birdie background was created using my Stamp-a-majig and the birds from the Love You Much stamp set. Alas, the sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes, a set that I've used so much more than I thought I would.
Punches used: 1-3/4" XL Circle, 2-3/8" XL Scallop CIrcle, Scallop Border
Paper: Blushing Bride, Real Red, Whisper White, Red Glitter
Ink: Real Red, Blushing Bride, Basic Black

P.S. didn't know if this was considered stamping or not but it snowed in San Antonio, TX, CRAZY, I know. So I "stamped" my boot print in the snow to prove it and add just a little more love to my post, brrrrr!

How beautiful Dawn! I might have to think about doing something similar. I need an anniversary card next week for my hubby! The way things are going (no Valentine's done yet) this will be a challenge in itself!
