Always be mine... CPS102

So I'm on a roll with the challenges...I saw the CPS sketch posted last night - so I went ahead and made a card last night - since I didn't know if I'd get a chance to stamp today.










Here's the sketch:

















Did you see the fun images that were used on the CPS team's samples??? A peek of what's to come, according to Nichole :) yay!

I figured I'd go ahead and my my honey's Valentine...so I broke out my Heart Prints set, and got to work.

I went back and used Nichole's color combo from the other day since I loved it so much...

Here's my take:
I tried not to make it overly girly...how did I do??? I brought the star in for a little more 'manliness' instead of two hearts.

The 'lace edge' below the white layer is a Marth Stewart Border punch...again not too girly.

I've been having a TON of fun keeping up with the challenges each day -- something about them has really gotten my creativity flowing!

Hope you have a great Sunday!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

You are on a roll, alright! And it's definitely not too "girly"!
You are doing so great with these challenges, Tracey!

I think you did fabulously well! I like the "manliness" you've achieved and I bought that same MS punch for that very reason -- it can go either way, I think!!!

Hi Tracey...I love your beautiful PTI card...you've really captured the PTI style - simple, yet striking with clean lines. I don't think I have the "no mo" gene in me that makes you stop adding more to my cards when need be. I love all things Papertrey but have a hard time trying to create in their "style".

OMG...and you're blog style is to-die-for. How in the world did you get something like this on blogspot?
