Hey there sweets!  

Todays inspiration comes from the pages of Paper Crafts magazine.  When I saw this gradient star, and simple layout, I knew it was the perfect starting point for my Valentine card.

I brought out some fun glitter from American Crafts, and set to work by die-cutting a heart, and running it through my Xyron sticker maker. 

I then took a white panel and stamped the little hearts from the Kiss Me set, in gold ink.  I layered up the glittered die cut heart with foam adhesive, and added a strip of vellum, heat embossed with my sentiment.

Lastly, I added some fun sequins, and outlined my panel with a black multi liner, before adhering it to a pink card base.  It is certainly more embellished than the original, and that's okay!  It is all about getting that creative spark, and running with it.

Thank you for joining me today!  I hope you take a fresh look at some of the magazines you have, and create something one of a kind inspired by it's content.
