Love Four You

Hi there and welcome back!  A quick post with my card for this week's sketch challenge at Just Add Ink.  Be sure to use the link below to check out all the wonderful inspiration!

Still needing a couple of Valentines, I decided to use this sketch to make one a shabby, distressed one for my 13-year old grandson.  Nothing to girly, at least I hope not.  ; - )

The Crumb Cake card base was stamped with the Hardwood background stamp, then topped with four Early Espresso squares holding various Valentine sentiments in different shapes, all from retired Stampin' Up! stamp sets.  After everything was adhered, I wrapped some retired Hemp twine lengthwise around one side.

Thanks so much for dropping by today - as always your visit and comments are so appreciated!

Stef I think all the woodgrain definitely tips it enough to the masculine side of things to balance out all the 'love' sentiments and your grandson will surely appreciate that he is special. Love the postage stamp detail! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
