Retrosketch # 97


   I have another Valentine card. I used the sketch from challenge # 97 of Retrosketches.

 I really love the clean and simple design.

Here's an upclose shot of the heart. I am disappointed in how the embossing came out. I actually did it twice. Both times the embossing was spotty. I even bought new white embossing powder since the one I had was old.

Overall, I am happy with this card. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

PS> It is amazing how sun makes all the difference when taking a photo.  Too bad we don't have more sunny days in winter.
