For this week's CAS challenge, the theme is "Love is in the air." That begs a valentine, but I've already finished my valentines for the year, so I did a birthday bird with hearts. I used the punched out hearts from the border punch to float away from the bird.
For this week's technique challenge, we're to dry emboss and sand some dp. I really like the divine swirls on this birthday text paper. I think it almost looks like white stamped over the color-- Whether it shows up in the photo? Eh.
I used viva la verve's second February sketch for the layout.

Oh, I love what you have created with this challenge. The dp you have chosen to emboss works so well with the sanding. Wouldn't have thought that a busy background would work with this technique but it does and with great results.

Brenda, this is so cute. I've often wondered how that MS heart border punch would look, now that I know, I just may have to invest in that!!! I can hear my husband now, you really need that Mary????? HA!
