Friday the 13th!'s Friday the 13th.  But tomorrow is Valentine's Day so let's focus on that.

I'm again participating in the challenge at Case(e) this Sketch.  I love their sketches and I always get inspired.  The simplicity of this week's sketch (sketch #110) really got my creativity flowing and after only a few moments, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

So first thing I did was grab this awesome stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  I positioned the stencil in the lower left hand corner of the card and used three different shades of red ink to create a subtle ombre effect.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Versafine black ink..and it didn't look right.  So I tried it again.....and it didn't turn out right.  So I finally wised up, stamped the sentiment first with the Versafine ink, embossed it with clear embossing powder, then used the stencil and ink.  Much easier and I was thrilled with the simplistic and elegant outcome! Happy Valentine's Day!
