5-Minute Valentine Card / Practical Scrappers Blog Hop Challenge #1!

Here's my first Valentine project for this weekend's Practical Scrappers blog hop! I'll debut another project each day through Monday, when I announce the winner of my blog candy!

This card took all of five minutes from start to finish. Most of the products came from this kit from JuJu Bee's Scrapbook Corner, featuring patterned paper from Glitz Designs - both of which are Practical Scrappers sponsors. I ordered this adorable kit last Wednesday and got it in the mail on Tuesday - I was so pleased with the quick turnaround and great price! Be sure to check both of these companies out!

I cut the heart out of double-sided patterened cardstock from Glitz Designs, and the scallop border was cut from the opposite side of the same sheet. I cut out a black square slightly larger than the heart and distressed everything with my Powder Puffs Midnight Confessions ink. The cardstock is Double Dot cardstock from Bo Bunny - which may now officially be my hands down favorite cardstock. One side has coordinating dots and the other side is a solid color and the texture is amazing. I added rub-on letters from Making Memories for my sentiment and a fun black dashed ribbon to top it all off, and it was all set to go!

Let me know what you think and become a follower on my blog for a chance to win some amazing Valentine's Day Blog Candy - and don't forget to particpate in the rest of the Practical Scrappers Blog Hop throughout the weekend for more great projects and more chances to win!!!
