Lace and Kraft Valentine's Day Card

Happy Thursday!

How is your New Year thus far?  I hope great! 

This week the Kraft Journal challenge is "Lace it up" and one of the sponsors at Word Art Wednesday is the Kraft Journal...woo-who!  For those of you that have followed my blog for a while, you probably have noticed that I enjoy working with Kraft paper.  Having two chances in one week to participate in a challenge for a gift card from Kraft Journal is a great week!  :)
Instead of using lace ribbon on my card I decided to use my new Cover A Card Rose Lace Stamp on Kraft paper.  (Thanks to my blogging buddy, Shona, for telling me about the Impression Obsession Cover A Card stamps!)  After heat embossing with clear ink and powder, I applied Tim Holtz Picket Fence white stain over the image.  The stain dried and I wiped the stain off of the embossed image with a moist cloth.  The heart with wings was highlighted with TH Barn Door marker and Stickles.

The inside is a stamped sentiment from JustRite (Samantha Walker's For All You Do stamp set). Isn't it just a heartwarming sentiment?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
