The Best Part of Myself

This Valentine is somewhat non-traditional -- no hearts, no pink or red, no lace. Yet, I think it is my favorite Valentine I made so far this year, and I have the perfect person to give it to.
I found this piece of designer paper in my stash and I have been waiting to use it. This wonderful sentiment stamp comes from Quietfire Designs Rubber Stamps as does the hugs and kisses. The kraft base and center panel is unusual for Valentine's Day, but works perfectly with the card. I like how the center diamond panel extends just a bit above and below the card. (Yes, it fits into a 5 1/2" square envelope.)
My card is being entered into these challenges: Ink on my Fingers Sunday Challenge -- Shine on You Crazy Diamond; Kraft Journal -- love; Frilly and Funkie -- Valentine's Day with a twist, no hearts.

Absolutely love that sentiment and I love your alternative Valentine, so refreshing to see something different from the usual red/black/hearts creations.... Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x
