Be my Valentine for Noor! Design and The Sketchy Challenges

Hello and good morning everyone! Today I have a Valentines card for you. I created it with soft brown tones with a little hint of red. I used some of the fabulous Noor! Design products. At the end of this post you can find the products list.

The border is made with the notebook die. The red hearts are made with the 'Sending Love - Heartbeat' stamp collection. I embossed them with red Frantage. As decoration I used the fab film strip die. I love this die and it is useful for many occasions.

Here you can see the beautiful heart die with swirls and the matching white embossed script stamp.

The sentiment 'With Love' is from the lovely 'Sending Love - Heartbeat' stamp collection too.

Another accent is made with the beautiful banner die.

Here you can see all the products I used from the Noor! Design Deutschland webshop:

I also made this card for the new challenge at The Sketchy Challenges. We have the theme 'Be my Valentine' and optional you can use following Sketch made by me:

Now I hope I was able to give you some inspiration and hope you will join our challenge.

With this card I also want to join some challenges:

With deepest Sympathy

Hello everyone, I am sure that no one of us love to make such cards. But what I am sure is, that the one who's receiving a sympathy card aprechiate to receive a selfmade card made with love. Lately I had to create such a card, for the widow of an old colleague from my partner.
There ar not much images and sentiments around to create sympathy cards. Whiff of Joy haves a sentiment collection very useful for that kind of cards and projects.

For my card I used the German text. But they aren't available anymore. But you still can get the English sentiments you can see above.

Have a happy weekend!
Hugs, Karina
