It's Paper Romance Challenge Day and Some Candy Too!

Today's Paper Romance Challenge is brought to us by DT member Donna, who chose red, cream, and gold Valentines for her challenge to us.  I used Squirrel in Love by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

I kept it very simple, adding embellishments and rub-on letters (Making Memories) for my sentiment. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and then I colored in the heart with a Lipstick Red Spica Glitter Pen. I used Faux Stitching along the bottom and attached some gathered lace and a loop of red and white patterned twill. The brushed gold paper is from The Paper Studio's Pearlized Collection.

See what the other DT members did HERE. Play along and you could win a $5 gift certificate to Paper Romance!  While you are there, check out Amy's great SALE - lots of stamps up to 50% off!
