Meant To Be Valentine's Day Card

   Hello again! Can you believe that Valentine's Day is only 15 days away??? This year is already flying by with Feb starting tomorrow. Today I have a fun card to give you some crafting ideas. If you saw my blog on Monday them you are probably thinking the backgrounds look the same.....and you would be right! I created this background at the same time as I did that one.

Again, all I did was take a piece of Watercolor paper and put 4 drops of the Frost White Shimmer paint down one side. Then I placed 1 drop of the reinker onto 2 of the paint

You can get this Foil for free with any $50 order before tax and shipping.    Since the theme was Valentine's Day I wanted to use hearts instead of flowers and I remembered the Heart Epoxy Droplets and used my Stampin' Blends to color them. I brings more color onto my card and goes along with my sentiment.      I kept the
