Mary gave us quite a challenge this week! Many of these colors are not go-to's for me, but I put on my big girl pants and cobbled a love note for my DH. He had several medical problems last year, culminating in open heart surgery just before Thanksgiving.
Made the salted BG with Pacific Point & Soft Sky and let dry, then added a Smoky Slate curved border sky. Stamped the schooner (dessert!) in Pacific Point on Starfruit. Colored the clouds with red Copics yielding a coral shade, then inked the sails with white gel pen. Cut and Matted with Nestie Labels 8 and mounted on the salted panel. PC generated the sentiment and cut with tag die. Knotted in place with the cord & anchor, mounted on a Smoky Slate card and done. PT - 4
I'll probably get flowers and chocolate from DH, but the best Valentine is having him here with me this year. Thanks Mary for the wonderful colors to spark this manly Valentine - I think I used them all! Thank you all for looking and have a peaceful day.

Wonderful love card for your DH. Glad to hear he is doing much better. Love your bg treatment for this nautically inspired card. Wonderful sailing ship image and I really like how you used the white cord with your sentiment label.

This is a beautiful card made for your dear husband. I am so glad to hear that he is doing better. I love how you created the waves with that embossing folder. The sail boat is such a great image and I like the red clouds meaning sailor's delight. A creative and nice looking way to attach your sentiment too.
