Happy Valentines Day!

Hello Peggy here, I am so excited to be here today! This is my very first post for Sin City Stamps as a Brand New Design Team Member and I couldn't be happier.  Today I would like to show you  a card made from several different media.
Items I used:

The first thing I did was to fussy cut some images of ephemera from the kit and
matched up some background paper. I layered two pieces of designer background paper.
I wanted to accentuate the beautiful flowers so I decided to emboss using The Vintage Background stamp and the Romance Stamp with clear embossing powder over top of my layered background paper. Next I took my two pieces of ephemera and placed them strategically one on either side. I gave the image of a boy a pink hue/shadow, by highlighting the background behind him with Pan Pastels in Magenta.

 I took the sentiment stamp from the February Frog Dog Studio Kit and
stamped with Stazon Ink Red on regular cardstock and backed it with metal tape to
reinforce it and to be able to manipulate the paper easily.  I think it gave it a nice shiny edge too.
I placed the Prima crown behind the little boy and touched it up with White Gesso. 
I thought it fitting that he was backed with postal paper as way back when they used to mail children.
 (true story).
I chose some handmade vintage ribbon to run through the middle and front of the card and 
finally I edged the card with a Gold Dabber 
Above you can make out the beautiful rose from Sin City Stamps in the 
middle of the postcard as well as the edging made with the Vintage background stamp. 

I hope you have enjoyed my Valentines Card as much as I enjoyed making it!
