Vintage Valentine Bird


I've mentioned before that I used to make valentines with my grandmother, and this is another one inspired by those memories. I'm really loving the feel of Very Vanilla on my cards right now, and I think it gives this one an old-fashioned feel.

The stamp is from Take It to Heart, cut out--of course--with the matching Hearts Framelits. I used the new Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz instead of coloring--that stuff is darker than I expected! I think it turned out beautifully and Grandma would have loved it.

Any special Valentine memories that are inspiring your crafting these days???
