Greg's Valentine Card

Happy St. Valentine's Day!  No romantic meal for 2 for me ... we were at a 5 year old's birthday party with chocolate cake and pass-the-parcel instead ... much better craic :)

Anyway this is the card I made for my other half.  As you know I'm not into 'mushy' cards, and had half an idea knocking about my head for a few days to use this little alien and that sentiment.   I had intended to stamp my sentiment on the moon, but I forgot myself and embossed my circles before I remembered.  Not to worry, I love how it turned out!

Alien from High Hopes - Alien Special Set
Moon from Paper Smooches - Smarty Pants
Sentiment from The Alley Way Stamps - More than Words
All coloured with watercolour pencils.  White paint splattered on BG and a few starry gems added. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the moon using an old Ellison Design folder.
