Retro Rubber Challenge #7 - Flashback Valentine / SSS Wednesday Challenge

A brand new week! I hope it brings only good things for you!

I have another Valentine's card for you. The Retro Rubber Challenge wants us to CASE one of our Valentine's card from a previous year using stamps older than one year.

I made this card in 2010. White card (hard to see), layer of red, holographic gift wrap, background stamped in black, punched hearts, last heart has red glitter on it.

This is my new version:

Stamps: Stamp Camp (background), Inkadinkado (sentiment)
Dies: WPlus9 (hearts), Simon Says Stamp (banner)
Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Barn Door

I silver embossed the background, mounted it on a pink card, cut out hearts from distress inked watercolor paper, added a banner. This shade of pink makes me very happy at the moment!
