Before Valentine's, I was into making Valentine's cards.  Today I have one that I did not give away, maybe next year.  I was just playing around with my stamps and old patterned paper from Stampin' Up!.  I've been challenging myself to use up of retired products.  

The starting point for this card was the piece of patterned Pixie Pink paper that's the middle layer.  You'll have to look really close.  From there, I had to find a color combo that was pleasing to work with.  I stuck with pinks but also used Basic Gray as a neutral for balance.   The complete color combo is Regal Rose, Pixie Pink, Pink Pirouette, and Basic Gray.  I also used a little bit of Very Vanilla.  

The layout was inspired by Clean and Simple FTL 175.  Of course its too late to enter into their challenge, but I still chose to play along.  I used the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set from Stampin' Up! for the card.  I stamped them in Regal Rose and then I covered the large heart with Crystal effects to give it a glossy look.  I really love how that turned out.  

I hope you enjoyed the card.
